Increased industrialization and pollution necessitate the development of
new energy sources while minimizing the impact on the environment.
Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz is being investigated as a potential source
of novel biofuels, especially as a source of isoparaffin-rich jet fuel.
However, currently, there is a paucity of phenotypic and genotypic data
for C. sativa. Using a collection of 236 C. sativa genotypes from
Eurasia, we assessed the phenotypic diversity of the collection using
image data from the Bellwether Foundation Phenotyping Facility at the
Donald Danforth Plant Science Center. Traits were measured using
PlantCV. Based on phenotypic data, we found that most of the C. sativa
accessions fell into 15 groups. There is strong phenotypic variance
within each of these groups. Our study provides insight into defining
potential C. sativa ideotypes.
