abiotic stress environments. Today, phenotyping is the ICAR Sponsored Short Course major rate limiting factor that limits the power of on genomics for high-resolution linkage mapping, genome-ICAR Sponsored Phenomics, the Next Generation Phenotyping wide association mapping and training genomic (NGP), for Trait Dissection and Crop ImprovementShort Course selection models. Thus, phenomics is necessary to bridge phenotype-genotype gap. Phenome is defined as About The Institute expression of the genome as traits in a given The Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI) is the onenvironment, while phenomics is defined as acquisition country's premier institution for agricultural research, and analysis of high-dimensional phenotypic data on an education and extension. It has been serving the cause organism-wide scale. This training aims to introduce the of science and society with distinction through basic Phenomics, the Next Generation participants to the emerging field of non-destructive high research, generation of appropriate technologies and throughput phenotyping, which will be useful to study the Phenotyping (NGP), for Trait development of human resources. The Division of Plant genotype–phenotype map and identify the physiological Physiology, a constituent of School of Basic Sciences of Dissection and Crop Improvementgenetic basis of complex traits.

The mandates of the be provided with hands on training in both conventional Division are to conduct basic and strategic research with phenotyping and simple low-cast non-destructive image (22-31 October, 2018)a view to understand the processes leading to solution of based phenotyping for obtaining biologically meaningful problems in crop productivity, to train Post-Graduate information with minimal environmental and students leading to M.Sc. and Ph.D. degree and to experimental noise. impart training in physiological tools to agricultural scientists of SAUs/ICAR Institutes. The Division has Theme contributed significantly in identification of factors limiting With the availability of next generation sequencing and crop yield, proposed crop ideotypes and impact of modern automated genotyping technologies, generating climate change on crops. This Division has developed accurate genotypic data for large set of germplasm and high throughput screening methods such as membrane breeding population has become easier. However, the stability index and chlorophyll stability index, and rate limiting step in utilization of these genomic data to demonstrated the utility of canopy temperature and identify genes and QTLs associated with economically Thermal IR imaging PSII imaging Visual color imagingchlorophyll fluorescence as selection criteria for abiotic ABAR6oABAR6oximportant traits are limited by the lack of accurate high xstress tolerance.
