Improving Plants: New Software Tool Quantifies the Complex Structure of Leaf Venation Networks, Enabling Advances in Plant Biology

Posted by jsweitz

The Weitz group has recently published a "Breakthrough Technology" article based on user-assisted software to analyze the structure of leaf venation networks. The program, called Leaf Extraction and Analysis Framework Graphical User Interface (LEAF GUI), enables scientists and breeders to measure the properties of thousands of veins much more quickly than manual image analysis tools.
