APPF Projects

Plant Scientists have gained vast knowledge about the genetics of various crop species during recent years. It has become increasingly easier and cheaper to sequence and map genomes, giving scientists access to information unimaginable just a few decades ago. However, a bottleneck has developed in capitalising on this information. The Australian Plant Phenomics Facility (APPF) has been developed to alleviate this ‘phenotyping bottleneck’.

Research at the APPF is leading to the development of new and improved crops, healthier food, more sustainable agricultural practices, improved maintenance and regeneration of biodiversity and the use of crops to develop pharmaceuticals in the face of declining arable land area and the challenges of climate change.
