True phenotyping-in-a-box solution

Phenotiki is an affordable, easy-to-use, maintain and deploy image-based plant phenotyping platform. With one day setup time, and about €200 of equipment, which is easily installed, plants can be imaged and analyzed automatically (based on powerful machine learning algorithms) on a desktop workstation or via a web browser on the iPlant Collaborative cloud. And the best part is open in design and freely available to the academic community. Made simple so you can focus on doing just science.
