Plant phenomics community

From the latest news on our blog, to our global calendar of unmissable plant science events and our network linkages, there are many ways to keep in touch, access resources or experts, and exchange ideas with others working in plant science and agriculture.

Throughout our website, and particularly our Community page, the Australian Plant Phenomics Facility aims to bring together fellow plant scientists to enable connections, knowledge and idea sharing, provide pointers on tools and experts, and share links and networks that may be of use. Here we aim to:

  • foster the development of a coordinated plant phenotyping community that makes best use of existing resources,
  • develop/access new technologies and support platforms for data exchange and reusability,
  • provide a platform to connect the expertise of diverse groups from platform operators, user groups, technology developers, and policy makers,
  • engage and inform diverse stakeholders,
  • promote and facilitate educational activities, e.g. phenomics workshops, conferences, student exchange, extension events, and
  • leverage linkages with international plant phenomics networks.
