The development and adoption of data standards is vital to the interoperability of data. transPLANT is currently pursuing the development of standards for plant phenotyping data, in collaboration with other interested groups. Visit our Phenotype Standardisation Portal to see the latest proposals and get involved.
The portal includes information regarding three core activities in this area:
- Standardisation of metadata: Minimum Information about Plant Phenotyping Experiment.
- Standardisation of vocabulary: Recommendations regarding the use of ontologies.
- Formats for phenotypic data exchange.
The portal will be updated when there are any new arrangements regarding formats and to add information about compatible tools.
