Bottom Line: Additionally, it eliminates the risk of human error associated with phenotyping and inputting data.We applied WIPPER to 100 individuals of a rice recombinant inbred line (RIL) for measuring leaf width and relative chlorophyll content (SPAD value), and were able to record an accurate data in a significantly reduced time compared with the conventional method of data collection.We are currently using WIPPER for routine management of rice germplasm including recording and documenting information on phenotypic data, seeds, and DNA for their accelerated utilization in crop breeding.

ABSTRACT
More accurate, rapid, and easy phenotyping tools are required to match the recent advances in high-throughput genotyping for accelerating breeding and genetic analysis. The conventional data recording in field notebooks and then inputting data to computers for further analysis is inefficient, time-consuming, laborious, and prone to human error. Here, we report WIPPER (for Wireless Plant Phenotyper), a new phenotyping platform that combines field phenotyping and data recording with the aid of Bluetooth communication, thus saving time and labor not only for field data recoding but also for inputting data to computers. Additionally, it eliminates the risk of human error associated with phenotyping and inputting data. We applied WIPPER to 100 individuals of a rice recombinant inbred line (RIL) for measuring leaf width and relative chlorophyll content (SPAD value), and were able to record an accurate data in a significantly reduced time compared with the conventional method of data collection. We are currently using WIPPER for routine management of rice germplasm including recording and documenting information on phenotypic data, seeds, and DNA for their accelerated utilization in crop breeding.

Flowchart of WIPPER. (A) A personal devise assistant (PDA) identifies the line/accession to be phenotyped upon scanning its barcode. (B) Data are collected by PDA via Bluetooth wireless communication. Black circles indicate the Bluetooth connector enabling each electric or digital phenotyping device to transfer data to the PDA by Bluetooth communication. (C) The data in PDA are exported to a storage environment via a USB connecter or Wi-Fi.

Mentions: WIPPER is a new field phenotyping system that is aided by wireless communications for data recording and storage as described in Fig. 1. In WIPPER, to identify individual lines or accessions, their barcodes are first scanned with a suitable personal digital assistant (PDA) including barcode reader, cellular phone, tablet PC and so on. Then, the phenotype data are collected using electronic measuring devices, e.g. electronic scale, electronic balance, and digital angle meter equipped with Bluetooth wireless communication system, which enables data transfer from electric measuring devices to PDA. Finally, the collected data in PDA are exported to a storage environment (PC or storage server) by USB connecter or Wi-Fi. By eliminating the need for data recording into notebook and manual data transfer to PC, WIPPER significantly minimizes or eliminates human error and improves the accuracy of data collected.
