Affiliation: is based at the Research Centre Jülich, a Helmholtz institute between Aachen and Cologne. One of the divisions of the Research Centre (IBG-2) focuses on the growth and physiology of plants, with a particular emphasis on novel techniques to enable (high-throughput) phenotyping of plant size and physiological status. This enables evaluation of large numbers of plants in a structured way. However, to profit from such an approach, the information obtained in this way should be embedded in a knowledge base. The meta-phenomics approach is aiming to provide such a knowledge base.
