LemnaTec Scanalyzer 3D platform at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center
Phenotype data is derived from images generated by the indoor LemnaTec Scanalyzer 3D platform at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center using PlantCV. PlantCV is an image analysis package for plant phenotyping. PlantCV is composed of modular functions in order to be applicable to a variety of plant types and imaging systems. PlantCV contains base functions that are required to examine images from an excitation imaging fluorometer (PSII), visible spectrum camera (VIS), and near-infrared camera (NIR). PlantCV is a fully open source project: https://github.com/danforthcenter/plantcv. For more information, see:
For the TERRA-REF project, a PlantCV Clowder extractor was developed to analyze data from the Bellwether Foundation Phenotyping Facility at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center. Resulting phenotype data is stored in BETYdb.
Description: Processes VIS/NIR images captured at several angles to generate trait metadata. The trait metadata is associated with the source images in Clowder, and uploaded to the configured BETYdb instance.
