Phenotyping plant virus infections

Recently we had the chance to explore the phenotyping of plant virus infections at the National Plant Phenotyping Infrastructure at the Viikki campus. Watch the introduction to the system to find out more about plant phenotyping!

The National Plant Phenotyping Infrastructure (NaPPI) enables automated high-throughput data-gathering of essential biological characteristics in plants. We were interested in investigating how virus infections affect photosynthesis, growth and stress-responses in our model plants. Find out more about plant phenotyping and the NaPPI system on this introductory video by Viikki Plant Science Centre (Our plants starring at 3:15!).
