C3 Colloquium 2018 - Algal phenomics
Bringing together an exciting mix of researchers with interests and expertise in algal phenomics.
The 2018 C3 Research Colloquium aims to bring together an exciting mix of researchers with interests and expertise in algal phenomics. Algae are a taxonomically highly diverse group of organisms that include some of the oldest forms of eukaryotic life and combine functional traits of bacteria, higher plants as well as animals. They are of major ecologic and economical importance, e.g. as key players in the global carbon cycle and producers of high-value bio-products.
Recent advances in high-throughput phenotyping rapidly increase the amount of available trait data in higher plants as well as algal models, closing the gap between phenomics and other high-throughput omics technologies. As phenomic techniques become more widely used, it increases the need for novel approaches and sensors for phenotypic trait measurements as well as defined standards, phenomic software, data analytics and integration with other omics data types to guarantee reproducibility and high quality science.
The goal of this colloquium is to discuss new developments and novel approaches in algal phenomics to overcome the challenges of high-throughput phenotyping and to identify opportunities in this fast emerging field.
