Projects

  • Mars-Alt

    Mars Alt is a pipeline primary designed to track cell lineages at different time steps. It provides algorithms for three-dimensional reconstruction and cell segmentation–automated lineage tracking (MARS-ALT). This work has been initiated during Romain Fernandez Phd. Further improvements are provided by Leo Guignard during his PhD.  Several contributors  from VirtualPlants team under the supervision of Christophe ...
  • Morphogenetics

    Morphogenetics is aimed at understanding how shape and architecture in plants are controlled by genes during development. To do so, we will study the spatio-temporal relationship between genetic regulation and plant shape utilizing recently developed imaging techniques together with molecular genetics and computational modeling. Rather than concentrating on the molecular networks, the project will study plant ...
  • RhizoScan

    An automated image-processing pipeline  for high-throughput analysis of root architecture in OpenAlea Automated acquisition systems of Root System Architecture (RSA) are now readily available for developmental research and provide high-throughput image data of roots. Existing acquisition systems provide many types of data, from images of dispersed root pieces to full 3d scans of underground root systems. In ...
  • PlantScan3D

    Automatic acquisition of plant phenotypes, and in particular of architecture phenotypes, constitutes a major bottleneck of the construction of quantitative models of plant development. Recently, 3D Laser Scanners (SL3D) have made it possible to acquire 3D images on which each pixel has an associated depth corresponding to distance between camera and the pinpointed surface of ...
  • OpenAlea

    The aim of this project is to foster the development and the national and international diffusion of the platform OpenAlea. This opensource plateform provides an easy-to-use environment for plant modellers through a visual programming interface to efficiently use and combe models or computational methods from different scientific fields in order to represent, analyse and simulate ...
  • Fruit3D

    The aim of this project is to develop a virtual tomato that contains geometrical description of a growing fruit, physiological models (for sugar and hormone transfers) and mechanical model. The project gathers the competence of plant modellers, physicists and ecophysiologists. Physical and biological laws involved in tissue differentiation and cell growth, in relation to fruit ...
