Phenome-Emphasis is a versatile infrastructure that characterises hundreds of genotypes of different plant species for genetic analyses under diverse environmental scenarios of climate change and agro-ecology (drought, high CO2, high temperatures, diseases, mixed crops). The infrastructure includes (i) four installations in controlled conditions for in-depth analysis of leaf or root system architecture and growth; (ii) two field installations with large rainout-shelters and a free-air carbon enrichment (FACE) system; (iii) three field installations with higher throughputs and flexibility; (iv) two supporting installations centralising specific, high throughput omic measurements. All installations can handle 200-300 genotypes, manipulate and/or control environmental conditions, and are equipped with consistent imaging devices. They are accessible to public and private users via a transparent process. Methodological projects (i) improve trait measurement, involving artificial intelligence and models, with a priority to biotic interactions (agroecology). This results in an open software, 4P, analysing series of images from field (UAV and ground vectors) and platforms (3D plant reconstruction). (ii) Organise phenotypic data so they can be reanalysed by a wide scientific community. A phenomic information system (PHIS) is progressively deployed in French nodes (field and indoor) and in European installations, for facilitating FAIR data access to the scientific community. Phenotypic data are linked to models for calculation of integrated traits and prediction of traits or yield in a range of environmental scenarios. Phenome-Emphasis facilitates the development of technology-provider SMEs for phenotyping and precision agriculture. Networking and training aim at academic groups, seed companies, SMEs and extension services. Phenome-Emphasis coordinates an Infrastructure EU project (EPPN2020) and is WP leader in the implementation phase for an ESFRI infrastructure.
