Genetic purity assessment on pepper seed

In a recent paper a Chinese research group shows that three varieties of pepper seed could be discriminated from VideometerLab images with more than 97% classification accuracy. SVM, CNN, and kNN classifiers were used and compared. Fast and non-destructive genetic purity tests has a huge potential in the seed industry and this paper shows the importance of spectral imaging for seed analysis in yet another important crop.
