The inaugural AusPheno Conference 2016 organised by the APPF, was held in September at the CSIRO Discovery Centre. The conference brought together 155 Australian and international plant scientists from the public and private sector for a week of talks and activities.
Combined with the 5th International Controlled Environment Conference, topics reviewed the latest phenomics technologies and their application and presented research findings in plant phenomics, including environmental controlled and field phenotyping, remote sensing, root phenotyping and genome to phenome analysis to name a few.
The APPF launched ‘Plant Phenomics Australia’ during the conference, a new network to provide plant phenomics researchers and other stakeholders from across Australia with a platform to interact, collaborate, share ideas and best practice in phenomics research.
The conference was a resounding success with delegates enjoying the quality, range and depth of talks presented during the week. More information including copies of the talks presented can be accessed from the conference website.
The next AusPheno conference will be held in 2018, more details will be posted in 2017.
