German Plant Phenotyping Network (DPPN)


 

The goal of the German Plant Phenotyping Network (DPPN) is the establishment of:

 >> new concepts and technologies for phenotyping
 >> phenotyping standards,
 >> productive and efficient infrastructure
 >> robust portfolio of phenotyping approaches

at the partner institutions to support German and international developments in plant sciences.

The applications include the identification of gen-function relations in basic plant science and to support of applied breeding. DPPN fosters the quantitative assessment of structure and function of plants in relation to the environmental conditions.

The relationships between genes, environment, and phenotype of a plant determines plant structure and function and it is essential to address grand challenges related to food and feed, the basic plant resource and materials, the climate as well as the energy challenge.

Integrating approaches across all scales of plant systems from molecular to field applications are necessary to develop sustainable plant production with higher yield using limited resources of land, water and nutrients more efficiently. While significant progress has been made in molecular and genetic tools for plant breeding in recent years, the quantitative analysis of the phenotype has become a major bottleneck. DPPN closes this gap.
