Methodological Collaboration projects
PHENOME will develop essential methodological collaborative projects.
Their objectives are to:
(i) Improve our capacity to measure plant traits and environmental conditions with accurate and high throughput methods (MCP1)
(ii) Organise phenotypic data originating from different nodes in a coordinated way, so that they can be analysed jointly through development in ontologies, webservices and methods of data representation, all of them compatible with those developed by European and Australian partner projects (MCP2)
(iii) Handle very large datasets comprising data at different time scales and plant organisation levels through data cleaning via artificial intelligence, analyses of time-related data, and the interface between data collection and plant / crop models. Additional specific methodologies will also be developed by each platform (MCP3)
