Tools developed in our lab and others to facilitate data visualization, analysis, and organization

RootScan - Anatomical Traits Analysis Software

RootScan is an imaging software designed to codify anatomical features of root cross sections from microscope digital images.

Architectural measurements from images in ImageJ

We provide ImageJ and ObjectJ project files to facilitate architectural measurements of maize and bean root crowns

Phenology and Nutrient Acquisition

We have developed an dynamic nutrient budget model that models root and shoot growth and resource allocation.

Statistics with R

Lab students are encouraged to use R for statistics and graphing. Come here to learn with us.

Digital Analysis of Root Growth with KineRoot

KineRoot is a MatLab-based program that tracks root movement and growth from a set of sequential photographs.

OneNote Lab Notebook

The computer has become so central to research that we may need to learn how to organize our experimental proposals, designs, data collection and results in new ways. OneNote may already be installed on your computer and useful for this endeavor.

Creating an Online Lab Repository

Solving the problem of sad messes of drives and cables by doing experiment planning, data backup and sharing, and scheduling with an online lab repository.

Open access software for scientists

Good software is necessary for the modern scientist. Here, we review free software supported on multiple platforms. Not only is this all the software one needs for obtaining a graduate degree, but open software leads to open science that benefits everyone.
