The lectures and practica were taught by drs D.Fanourakis, F.Fiorani, O.Muller and H.Poorter covering topics such as plant growth analysis and plant phenotyping techniques. For the practica MAICH prepared tomato plants at different growth conditions; 2 salt concentrations, shade, water stress and low and high nutrients. These plants were “phenotyped” by the students and the results were presented by the students in a final oral presentation.
The students from MAICH had to take an exam in January 2015 about the Phenomics course in which questions were prepared and checked by the DPPN teachers. The feed-back received by the students at the end of the course was very positive and concentrated on the advantage of having the possibility to discuss with the teachers as well as the significant stimulation of having multiple teachers who interacted among themselves.
