rosettR can be used to estimate the areas of seedlings that grow in predominantly two dimensions such as the rosettes of Arabidopsis thaliana seedlings. Briefly, plants are grown on solid medium in tissue culture plates and photographed at set intervals. Images are then analyzed using the functions implemented in this package to estimate area and relative growth rate of the seedlings over time. These estimated areas can then used to compare the differences between genotypes and the effect of applied treatments.
