The Parametric Plant Project

The Parametric Plant Project is a new exciting initiative at the University of Saskatchewan for creating a digital plant phenotype -- a digital representation of the physical characteristics of plants and crops. This project part of the $37M Canada First Research Excellence Fund grant to the Global Institute for Food Security (GIFS) at the University of Saskatchewan. The project includes an academic and industrial research consortium in Digital Plant Imaging & Modeling. Research activities are directed towards high-resolution, statistical, and mechanistic model of plant development. I am leading the Image Acquisition & Analysis sub-theme of the CFREF grant.
