PHENO aims to provide access to plant phenotypic datasets, with a major focus on the woody plant domain. Plant phenotyping is central to plant research and breeding and is becoming increasingly throughput, with large amounts of data being generated from diverse experimental settings. Access to phenotypic datasets annotated according to widely accepted standards contributes for data interoperability, enabling powerful genotype-phenotype association studies.

Plant Experimental Assay Ontology (PEAO)

The Plant domain has been the subject of several attempts to structure and formally define terms and corresponding relations, such as their anatomical features, developmental stages, and the application of particular experimental procedures to a biological problem. However, a focus on experimental assays in order to describe the whole experimental procedure, to the best of our knowledge, has only been attempted in the context of a very general description based on classical views of the scientific method.
