German Plant Phenotyping Network (DPPN)
DPPN is a national network of three German re-search centers: i) Forschungszentrum Jülich (coordination IBG-2), ii) Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and iii) Crop Plant Research Gatersleben and the Helmholtz Center Munich.
The Helmholtz initaitive aims on the development of scientifically based solution options for a sutainable bioeconomy which will be evaluated in pilot systems and studies.
Since 2017, plant research activities in the Helmholtz Association have been strategically bundled within the "Helmholtz Partnership for Plant Sciences" (HP-PS).
