The advancement of bioinformatics in the past decade has enabled plant researchers to obtain extensive knowledge of the genotype information of a number of plants. However, the progress in plant phenotype analysis (especially 3D phenotype) is still quite limited. Duan is interested in using advanced imaging technology and image analysis tools to bridge this gap and to construct the corresponding correlations between genotypes and phenotypes.

His lab is working to employ novel deformable models to reconstruct the 3D shapes of the leaves, kernels, and roots of plants from multi-view 2D images. The reconstructed 3D shape of the plant will enable his lab to calculate various geometric invariants such as Mean/Gaussian curvature and first/second fundamental forms. These invariants are essential for conducting comprehensive structural and statistical shape analyses (e.g., spherical harmonic analysis and conformal mapping) to extract the 3D phenotype and to investigate and quantify the correlations between phenotypes and their corresponding genotypes.
