SmartRoot

Official page Github repo

SmartRoot is a semi-automated image analysis software which streamlines the quantification of root growth and architecture for complex root systems.

The software combines a vectorial representation of root objects with a powerful tracing algorithm which accommodates to a wide range of image source and quality.

The software supports a sampling-based analysis of root system images, in which detailed information is collected on a limited number of roots selected by the user according to specific research requirements.
