A Project is a MIAPPE investigation: a formal ontology for metadata describing a phenotyping experiment.

The MIAPPE schema permits one or more studies to be associated with each investigation. Each study describes a particular instance of an experiment, with properties such as start/end dates, location, environmental parameters, etc.

Currently plantit allows users to associate projects and studies with tasks, linking computational analyses to their experimental context. Eventually we also intend to support:

  • associating studies with one or more datasets

  • tagging data objects as samples of biological materials

  • image annotations
