DynamicRoots: A Software Platform for the Reconstruction and Analysis of Growing Plant RootsOlga Symonova, Christopher N. Topp, Herbert EdelsbrunnerPLOS ONE, 2015 View paper
DynamicRoots is a software platform for reconstructing and analyzing the growth of a plant root system from a time-series of 3D voxelized shapes. It aligns the shapes with each other, constructs a geometric graph representation together with the function that records the time of growth, and organizes the branches into a hierarchy that reflects the order of creation. The software includes the automatic computation of structural and dynamic traits for each root in the system enabling the quantification of growth on fine-scale.
