The International Plant Phenotyping Network (IPPN) is organising the 6th International Plant Phenotyping Symposium from 22-26 October, 2019 in Nanjing, China. Rick van de Zedde and René Klein Lankhorst (both from Wageningen University & Research) will present plant phenotyping research in the Netherlands.
René Klein Lankhorst will inform his audience on the identification of genes involved in adaptation of plant photosynthesis to high light using plant phenotyping. He will also elaborate on the options that NEPC will offer to phenotype plants for photosynthetic efficiency.
Rick van de Zedde will present the possibilities of automation and robotics for high-throughput phenotyping and precision horticulture.
IPPN is an association representing the major plant phenotyping centers. IPPN aims to provide all relevant information about plant phenotyping. The goal is to increase the visibility and impact of plant phenotyping and enable cooperation by fostering communication between stakeholders in academia, industry, government, and the general public.
