EZ-Rhizo: integrated software for the fast and accurate measurement of root system architecturePatrick Armengaud,Kevin Zambaux,Adrian Hills,Ronan Sulpice,Richard J. Pattison,Michael R. Blatt,Anna AmtmannThe Plant Journal, 2008 View paper
EZ-Rhizo software enables the analysis of images of roots grown on two-dimensional media such as agar plates. The software provides a semi-automated system for root detection, measurement of multiple parameters relevant to the root architecture, data storage and data analysis. It is ideally suited for developmental and phenotypic descriptions of individual plants and plant species, accessions, and mutants, and of growth under varying nutritional and environmental conditions. The program facilitates new research perspectives in the areas of functional genomics, breeding and QTL analysis, and in predictive analysis of plant performance.
