Plant Phenome

Project description

Digging deep into plant characteristics

Feeding future generations requires climate-smart agricultural techniques and methods to ensure a sustainable increase of agricultural productivity. This is why plant phenotyping is important: to grow more food with better nutrition quality and to improve our understanding of plant–environment interaction. Within this context, the EU-funded Plant Phenome project will provide a detailed philosophical analysis of the main concepts and methodologies in phenome research, specifically in plant science. It will conduct a detailed ontological and epistemological analysis of main concepts, such as phenome, phenotypic trait and stress resistance, as well as all the phases in plant phenomics research. The project will deliver a proper philosophical analysis of the key concepts and ideas in the field.
