EPPN Workshop: Plant Phenotyping, 11 May 2012, Warsaw, Poland
Plants develop by a complex interaction of genotypes with the environments. The need to characterize the phenome is essential to understand fundamental processes which determine the structure and function of plants.
While significant progress has been made in molecular and genetic tools in plant science and breeding in recent years, the quantitative analysis of the phenotype has become a major bottleneck. Insufficient technical and conceptual capacity imposes a limitation on the plant scientific community to analyze the existing genetic resources for its interaction with the environment.
The European Plant Phenotyping Network (EPPN) is an EU-funded infrastructure project with the overall goal to create structural and functional synergies between the plant phenotyping institutions in Europe by linking phenotyping experts, user communities and technology development.
The cornerstone of the project includes support of transnational access of a diverse user community to the major plant phenotyping facilities in Europe.
The EPPN consortium offers Transnational Access to:
23 experimental plant phenotyping facilities
at 7 different institutions
in 5 countries across Europe.
The workshop aims at discussing the needs and opportunities of plant phenotyping and the possibilities to access the EPPN facilities.
Participation is FREE to everyone interested in plant phenotyping, but participants are expected to cover their travel and accommodation expenses.

The workshop is located at the Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics (Auditorium of Prof. W. Gajewski (Build. B; 2nd Floor) which is situated in the Ochota Campus (http://www.ibb.waw.pl/en/about-ibb). Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences, Pawinskiego 5a, 02-106 Warszawa
