Research Project: SOYBEAN PROTEIN IMPROVEMENT ACCELERATED BY PERFECT MOLECULAR MARKERS

Location: Plant Genetics Research

Project Number: 3622-21000-032-02
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Apr 01, 2008
End Date: Mar 31, 2011

Objective:
Evaluate the progress that can be achieved in developing soybean germplasm with improved meal value utilizing perfect molecular markers.

Approach:
1. Make crosses and develop initial populations segregating for tractable meal traits. 2. Use molecular markers to select desired genotypes. 3. Backcross selected genotypes and develop segregating populations. 4. Advance material identified with desired genotypes. 5. Evaluate meal trait phenotypes and agronimic characteristics of lines.
