Viable Methodologies for Phenomics and High-throughput Chemical Analysis: Adaptations and Applications

Ma. Rebecca C. Laza
Senior Associate Scientist II

Abstract: Phenotyping a large number of genotypes across environment provides add-on information on GxE interactions for a given trait. However, phenotyping for many traits especially on highly diverse accessions such as the indica panel is quite tedious, slow, and sometimes complicated. This seminar highlights some viable methodologies for field phenomics and high throughput chemical analyses that we have developed/adapted since the beginning of the Global Rice Phenotyping Network of the GRiSP. Empirical application and examples of results will be presented. A wealth of phenomics data has been generated for traits related to yield potential and lodging resistance. These data will be used for genome wide association studies to identify candidate genes associated with desirable traits and identify donor materials carrying them.
