Enviratron robot rover gathers plant heat-stress response data

A new study shows how two responses in separate locations inside plant cells work in concert to help corn plants respond to heat stress. The research was made possible by the Enviratron, an innovative plant sciences facility at Iowa State University that utilizes a robotic rover and highly controlled growth chambers. The Enivratron’s plant measuring robots were developed by ABE’s Lie Tang.
