Tools capable of predicting emergent crop phenotypes in response to climate change are needed to evaluate risk to food security and direct research efforts toward making educated decisions about which metabolic pathways to modify. Individual models are limited in their ability to provide a holistic view of plant or ecosystem response to global change. To address this limitation, we are generating a multi-scale modeling platform called Plants in silico (Psi) to provide a quantitative knowledge framework where the implications of a discovery at one level can be examined at the whole plant or even crop or natural ecosystem levels. This community effort will generate new insights into plant biology as well as new modalities for collaboration and integration among plant biologists, engineers, and computer scientists.
