Plant Phenotyping for Climate Tolerant Crops
Thursday June 8th, 5.30 to 6.30 pm @ TREX 4th Floor
Katie Murphy, PhD
Director of Phenotyping & Principal Investigator, Donald Danforth Plant Science Center
In order to breed and engineer crops that thrive in future climate scenarios, we must understand how stressful environments impact plant growth and development. At the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, the Phenotyping Core Facility uses image and weight-based measurements in controlled and field environments to understand the impacts of genetics, crop management, and the environment on how plants grow. An automated, robotic, imaging systems coupled with computer vision and machine learning tools allow investigations of the mechanisms underlying plant stress responses.
About AgriTech Thursdays
AgriTech Thursdays is a monthly, after-work event focused on agricultural technologies research and collaboration in the St Louis region. At each event, one company or researcher gives a short, 15 minute talk on an existing or solved research problem of their choosing and how it fits into the wider agricultural technologies landscape.
