PHENOSEM is a seed phenotyping platform developed at GEVES’s seed testing station (SNES) as part of the SFR Quasav platforms, of which GEVES is a partner. PHENOSEM is part of the PHENOTIC instrumentation and imagery platform for seeds and plants.
The development of this platform stems from the SNES’s extensive experience in seed phenotyping. In addition, it benefits from years of collaborative research on automation and image analysis, which has been led since 2000 with various partners from the plant field (GEVES, INRA, Vilmorin) and the ICST field (Information and Communication Sciences and Technologies) with the University of Angers and ESEO, in particular as part of the previous project PHENOTIC.
The platform’s activities are aimed at both professionals and research, for specific services (such as germination kinetics or radiography), collaborative research projects, or access to our tools
