PRIMAL stands for a Pipeline of Root Image analysis using MAchine Learning. In short, the pipeline use Machine Learning techniques (Random Forest in particular), tu streamline the image analysis of large root dataset.

PRIMAL needs only a subset of the data to be analyse manual, instead of the full dataset. That subset is then used to train the algorithm behind PRIMAL the predict the parameters of interest, based on automatically acquired descriptors.
