Abstract

High-throughput technologies for determining DNA sequence variations have enabled new genomics-based breeding strategies, such as genomic selection. While genomics technologies are making rapid progress in throughput and cost efficiencies, technologies for measuring plant phenotypes, i.e., "phenotyping", remain inefficient. Phenotyping is now the most time-consuming and error-prone step in genomic-based breeding strategies. To measure plant phenotypes with high efficiency and accuracy, we are developing a high-throughput phenotyping system. The system consists of two main parts: The plant management system using radio-frequency identification device (RFID) tags and the data collection system connected to multiple measuring devices via Bluetooth. The first system enables us to link plants to data on the Internet and to keep records of cultivation management. The second system enables us to collect data measured by multiple devices via Bluetooth connections. With this system, we can aggregate various types of measurement data in an efficient and precise manner. High-throughput phenotyping systems lead to efficient and accurate data collection and will strongly support genomic breeding in crop plants.
