RAPA (Raspberry Pi Automated Phenotyping Array) is a flexible toolkit for the measurement of growth and fitness related traits in large plant populations. It is based on simple imaging, making the method reproducible at low cost in different facilities. However, as manual imaging of large plant populations can quickly become a limiting factor, we also describe an automated high throughput imaging coupled with micro-computers that enables large phenotypic screening for genome-wide association studies and stress experiments.
