Description

This software was developed for recording and quantifying nodule distribution patterns in a standardized way, based on image analysis. The software can be used to quantify differences in nodulation patterns among cultivars, under different environmental conditions, and/or between different legume species. Such quantitative phenotyping will make it possible to explore the link between nodulation patterning, root system architecture, and ultimately plant yield.
