|The National Plant Phenomics Centre provides a step change in the way plant biology is implemented. The high throughput part allows whole populations of plants, such as breeding populations, mapping experiments, natural diversity collections, and mutant collections, to be analysed in parallel and under multiple defined environments. Scientists will use the centre to ask questions about plant characteristics – everything from growth rate to water use to formation useful metabolites – and how these physical parameters are affected by genes, the environment and the interplay between the two. The answers will feed back into twenty-first century food security challenges and the need for better, more efficient biofuels among other projects. The NPPC will be fully operational in 2013 and is part of IBERS, which receives strategic funding from BBSRC.
