High-tech method developed to analyse wheat

Press/Media: Media contribution

Description

A pioneering new technique has been developed to extract novel information from 3D images of wheat grain heads. His work will help scientists to develop new strains of wheat with the potential to be more resilient to climate change, better adapt to harsh environments, or have a more optimised grain size and overall yield.
