Plant phenotypic data shrouds a wealth of information which, when accurately analysed and linked to other data types, brings to light the knowledge about the mechanisms of life. As phenotyping is a field of research comprising manifold, diverse and time-consuming experiments, the findings can be fostered by reusing and combining existing datasets. Their correct interpretation, and thus replicability, comparability and interoperability, is possible provided that the collected observations are equipped with an adequate set of metadata. So far there have been no common standards governing phenotypic data description, which hampered data exchange and reuse.In this paper we propose the guidelines for proper handling of the information about plant phenotyping experiments, in terms of both the recommended content of the description and its formatting. We provide a document called Minimum Information About a Plant Phenotyping Experiment, which specifies what information about each experiment should be given, and a Phenotyping Configuration for the ISA-Tab format, which allows to practically organise this information within a dataset. We provide examples of ISA-Tab-formatted phenotypic data, and a general description of a few systems where the recommendations have been implemented.Acceptance of the rules described in this paper by the plant phenotyping community will help to achieve findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable data.

In PlantHUB will capture the academic, industrial and regulatory expertise from 5 world-class universities, 1 public research organisation, 1 governmental organization, 8 enterprises including 5 SMEs to train 10 ESRs in skills and competencies necessary to apply responsible research and innovation (RRI) in the area of plant breeding and production. We wish to address the demand of RRI leadership in plant science related research and diffusion of innovation. The individual research projects are demand-driven, responding to the needs of companies - particular SMEs - to increase R&I capacities. The outcomes are new molecular tools for plant breeding, new forage, cereal and oil crop varieties, non-invasive imaging and phenotyping technologies, intelligent lighting systems for plant growth, new software and services for complex genomic analyses, and plant product quality. PlantHUB industrial doctoral programme is ground-breaking in a number of respects: (i) doctoral training is placed into an entrepreneurial environment of leading public and private organisations (ii) it combines practical hands-on R&D and technology transfer in plant breeding and production with RRI training and practise. On completion of the training, graduates will have deep interdisciplinary knowledge of plant breeding, crop improvement, high-throughput technologies, isotope and big data analysis. In combination with a portfolio of transferable skills they will be able to take a lead in stakeholder & public engagement, innovation management, technology transfer and entrepreneurship. Our programme will become a flagship example at the forefront of intersectoral research, underpinned with a carefully created training curriculum to foster awareness, know-how, expertise and competence in RRI.

Fronds of the duckweed Lemna minor L. clone St form colonies of different sizes on the basis of stipes connecting mother and daughter fronds for some time after the development of daughter fronds. All the metals (AsO4 3-, AsO2 -, Cd2+, CrO4 2-, Co2+, Cu2+, Ni2+, Hg2+, Tl+ and Zn2+) and one non-metal (SeO4 2-, SeO3 2-) tested here induced frond abscission, thus decreasing the colony size on the basis of a novel mechanism of abscission described recently. Concentration-response curves were created based on percentages of frond abscission after 7 and 24h of toxic compound application, and response concentrations were calculated accordingly. The following conclusions could be drawn: (1) in most cases the response demonstrates less sensitivity than the bio test based on the ISO protocol 20079. (2) Even applying 1mM of the metals, AsO4 3-, CrO4 2-, Co2+ and Zn2+ did not reach the half-maximal effects. (3) The concentration-response curves are bell-shaped with AsO2-, Cd2+, Hg2+, SeO3 2- and Tl+, which demonstrates that abscission is induced by lower but not by higher concentrations. (4) Frond abscission shows fast and sensitive effects (24h) for Ag+, Cu2+, AsO2-, SeO4 2-, SeO3 2- and Tl+. The mechanisms and responses described here quantitatively for the first time complement and explain observations within the frame of the ISO protocol. Therefore, frond abscission should be regularly reported in the standard test protocols as abscission always indicates massive physiological effects. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.

Lemna minor L. (duckweed) forms colonies through vegetative propagation because mother fronds remain connected for some time with their daughter fronds by stipes. The colony size is controlled by abscission of stipes at a specific preformed abscission zone. Application of silver ions (Ag+) enhances the rate of frond abscission, thus resulting in smaller colonies. The mechanism behind this process has not yet been identified. Silver caused an abscission response that saturated after 7h of treatment. The half-maximal effective concentration was 0.72μm Ag+ for the standard clone, L. minor St. Other clones of the same species show sensitivities that differ by one order of magnitude. Transmission electron microscopy revealed: (i) large numbers of vesicles close to the plasmalemma in cells adjacent to the abscission zone, which proves a vesicular type secretory activity; and (ii) a moderately electron-dense secretion accumulated in the enlarging intercellular spaces, and seemed to flow from the adjacent cells towards the abscission zone. We assume that increasing pressure causes this material to push apart the cells, thereby causing the break in the abscission zone of the stipe. This is a novel mechanism of abscission that has not previously been described. The same mechanism occurs in stipes of both control and Ag+-treated samples. Silver ions only accelerate the process leading to abscission of stipes, without affecting the mechanism involved. © 2010 German Botanical Society and The Royal Botanical Society of the Netherlands.
