Standardisation group

In the field of phenotypic datasets’ standardisation we are working on three layers:

  • Standardisation of metadata: Minimum Information about Plant Phenotyping Experiment standard (MIAPPE)
  • Standardisation of vocabulary: recommendations regarding the use of ontologies
  • Format for phenotypic data exchange by flat files and web services (ISA-Tab for Phenotyping)

Our standardisation activities in the area of plant phenotyping are undertaken as WP3 (Community standards for interoperability of data resources) of the EU-funded transPLANT project, a project to construct an e-infrastructure for plant genomic science. To achieve a broad agreement on phenotyping standards we are in collaboration with European Plant Phenotyping Network (EPPN), who target similar problems as one of their activities (EPPN standards).

TransPLANT WP3 partners:

  • Institute of Plant Genetics, Polish Academy of Sciences (IPG PAS)
  • Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK)
  • European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EBI-EMBL)
  • Institute National de la Recherche Agronomique (INRA)
  • Biogemma
  • Stichting Dienst Landbouwkundig Onderzoek (DLO)
