Bioactive Natural Products from Plants: Analysis and Association with Human Health
Plants are rich in various bioactive molecules, including polyphenols, carotenoids, phytosterols, tocopherols, tocotrienols, organosulfur compounds, peptides, and fibers. These bioactive compounds have been proven to promote human health by preventing the onset and progression of diseases.

Development of New Sensing Technology in Sustainable Farming and Smart Environmental Monitoring
In recent years, new sensing technology and instruments, artificial intelligence, big data and Internet of Things have developed rapidly. The application of such technology and instruments has permeated almost all scientific research and production practices in all walks of life. Not unexpectedly, it has already had a profound impact on plant science. 

Speed Breeding in Crops
In the scenario of global climate change, food security is a critical issue due to the increasing human population and environmental pollutants, and one of the greatest challenges is how to accelerate plant breeding programs for future crops with high yield and stress tolerance.

Accelerating image-based plant phenotyping and pattern recognition: deep learning or few-shot learning?
In recent years, deep learning methods have played a great role in the plant sciences and achieved a series of remarkable achievements in many fields. Few-shot learning is a new branch of deep learning, which aims to develop an intelligent model with good generalization from only few data, towards the combination of machine intelligence with flexibility and extensibility. Both deep learning and few-shot learning are technological explorations in the field of plant sciences that have the potential to greatly accelerate their applications.
