Group Objective

The objective of this group is to bring together Phenotyping experts, Gene Bank Managers and Breeders to:

  • Identify new strategies and adopt new technologies to evaluate plant genetic resources,
  • Develop standards, ontologies and data management practices to make phenotypic data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR) and
  • Collaborate with communities of practice to encourage adoption of controlled vocabularies and standardized approaches to phenotyping by members of the community.
Expected Outcomes

Review papers, trainings, webinars and workshops to identify gaps and find solutions to encourage the use of new phenotyping technologies to accelerate breeding for climate resilient crops.
