Noble Research Institute
Larry York is an assistant professor at Noble Research Institute and leader of the Root Phenomics Lab. His work focuses on the functional characterization of crop roots using high-throughput phenotyping in order to better understand basic biological processes and to apply them in the Noble breeding programs. Recent work has focused on developing root imaging platforms for field-based root crown phenotyping and platforms for physiological measurements such as root respiration and root nutrient uptake. He is motivated to keep the hardware and software affordable, easy-to-use, and widely available to make the most impact in the plant biology community.
