DEVELOPMENT OF IMPROVED SOYBEAN LINES WITH LOW LINOLENIC OR HIGH OLEIC ACID
Project Number: 6645-21220-012-54
General Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Apr 01, 2012
End Date: Sep 30, 2013
Conduct genetic research leading to increased knowledge of soybean oil for applied plant breeding improvements in oil quality and quantity.
Utilize classical methods of plant breeding, gas chromatography of fatty acid methyl esters, and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) for molecular marker assisted selection (MAS) for soybean oil improvement.
