 Computational modeling of plant functions and traits: challenges and opportunities 

Abstract: The rapid growth in a wide range of biological data has led to discoveries transforming plant science. Beyond the original intents for generating these data, there are opportunities to reuse and integrate them computationally for addressing new questions that impact both basic and applied plant sciences. We will discuss how such integration can lead to computational models predictive of plant gene functions and traits. We will also discuss challenges in understanding how and why the models work, in adopting fast evolving and increasingly complicated computational approaches, and in training the next generation scientists to meet the grand challenges in plant sciences.
