iPlant Genotype to Phenotype

Description:
Purpose: iPlant's "Genotype to Phenotype" Grand Challenge is creating computer tools to help scientists understand the complex network of genotype and environmental interactions. Deciphering this puzzle will allow us to understand and improve the phenotypes of the crops on which we rely.
