Large-scale phenotyping methods are at the heart of efficiently deciphering the functions of genes and gene networks in the postgenomic era. In order to obtain meaningful results when comparing natural variants, and mutants and wild-types during large-scale quantitative analyses, necessary precautions must be employed throughout the whole process. Here, we describe large-scale elemental profiling in Arabidopsis thaliana and other genetic model organisms using high-throughput analytical methodologies. We also include a description of workflow management and data storage systems.
