A subset of ~30 inbreds were evaluated in 2014 and 2015 to develop an image based ear phenotyping tool. The data is stored in CyVerse.
Data types in this directory tree are: dimension and width profile data collected from scanned images of ears, cobs, and kernels collected from the Genomes To Fields (G2F) project cooperators. G2F is an umbrella initiative to support translation of maize (Zea mays) genomic information for the benefit of growers, consumers and society. This public-private partnership is building on publicly funded corn genome sequencing projects to develop approaches to understand the functions of corn genes and specific alleles across environments. Ultimately this information will be used to enable accurate prediction of the phenotypes of corn plants in diverse environments. There are many dimensions to the over-arching goal of understanding genotype-by-environment (GxE) interactions, including which genes impact which traits and trait components, how genes interact among themselves (GxG), the relevance of specific genes under different growing conditions, and how these genes influence plant growth during various stages of development.
