Description

Hypophen is an open-source software enabling the semi-automatic phenotyping of growing seedlings from time-lapse images. More precisely, it computes and records the elongation and bending of the seedlings. It is semi-automatic in the sense that manual calibration, verification and adjustments are sometimes needed. For an experienced user, it allows a throughput of about 50 images of 20 hypocotyls in about 10 minutes, given a reasonable image quality.
