1. Make nine crosses and develop initial populations segregating for GmFAD3A and GmFAD3C alleles. 2. Use molecular markers to select desired genotypes. 3. Backcross selected genotypes and develop segregating populations. 4. Use molecular markers to select desired genotypes in 75% recurrent parent genome. 5. Advance material identified with desired genotypes. 6. Evaluate fatty acid profile of selected lines.
