In the barley project GS1 a genetically well characterised barley collection will be investigated in high-throughput conditions for phenotypic diversity. Using the automatic generation of images in visible light, fluorescence (400-500 nm) and in near infrared via LemnaTec-Scanalyzer-3D-Platform a drought stress test is developed and used for characterisation of a spring barley collection. Based on this data genetic analysis for detecting associations of phenotypic values for drought tolerance and genetic markers will be performed.
