TechConnect Innovation Program

High Throughput Quantitative Assessment of Complex Plant Traits and Physiological Responses

Plants As Plants, TX, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

Innovative methods to better predict the field performance of novel plant genetics and/or new agricultural technologies that affect complex plant traits will be developed in a high-throughput greenhouse and field plant phenotyping (HTPPC) center, established to provide services to a broad spectrum of public and private plant research entities.

Primary Application Area: Biotech & Biological Sciences

Technology Development Status: Proven Manufacturability

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 4

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: Access to affordable phenotyping in the United States is extremely limited. This HTPPC capitalizes on the existing and considerable government and industry investments made in plant functional genomics, metabolic engineering and modern breeding technologies and bring new critically identified, high value, high demand products to the marketplace, efficiently and affordably.
