How can we identify plants?
Plants are essential for many aspects of our daily lives as they provide food, medicines, and construction materials. However, plants can also cause harm, think of poisonous plants, pollen allergies, adulterants in herbal medicines, or invasive species. Correct identification of plants is therefore crucial but unfortunately this is often problematic. Plant.ID will address this issue by developing state-of-the-art molecular solutions for a simplified way of identifying plants.
