Aims and scope

Plant Methods is an open access, peer-reviewed journal for the plant research community that encompasses all aspects of technological innovation in the plant sciences.

The goal of this journal is to stimulate the development and adoption of new and improved techniques and research tools and, where appropriate, to promote consistency of methodologies for better integration of data from different laboratories.

Call for papers: Few-shot Learning

The guest editors Yang Li, Jiachen Yang, and Francesco Marinello are pleased to invite you to submit an article to the new thematic series Accelerating image-based plant phenotyping and pattern recognition: deep learning or few-shot learning?
