Research Project: IMPROVING SOYBEAN PRODUCTION IN ELEVATED [O3]: SELECTING GENOTYPES AND UNDERSTANDING MECHANISMS OF TOLERANCE IN THE FIELD

Location: Global Change and Photosynthesis Research Unit

Project Number: 3611-21000-027-01
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Dec 01, 2009
End Date: Nov 30, 2013

Objective:
This research will investigate the response of random inbred lines of soybean to elevated ozone concentrations in the field at the SoyFACE experiment. We will use existing tools from high throughput genomics, metabolomics, comparative and quantitative genetics, and bioinformatics to elucidate the mechanisms of soybean yield response to elevated ozone.

Approach:
This project will use physiological and biochemical analysis, comparative and quantitative genetics, and bioinformatics to study the mechanisms of soybean yield response to elevated ozone.
