Research Project: FISKEBY SOYBEANS - RESISTANT TO A BROAD SPECTRUM OF ENVIRONMENTAL STRESSES: GENETIC ANALYSIS AND APPLICATION TO BREEDING

Location: Plant Science Research

Project Number: 6070-11000-008-09
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: May 01, 2010
End Date: Apr 30, 2013

Objective:
Phenotype a soybean mapping population for environmental stress factors.

Approach:
Random inbred lines (RILs) are nearing final stages of development and 192 RILs will be selected for marker assisted mapping of resistance genes. The RILs will be assayed for single nucleotide polymorphisms to identify markers for mapping. The RILs will be assessed for response to drought, iron deficiency chlorosis, salt stress, aluminum stress, and ozone stress. Injury scores and DNA marker results will be related through QTL analysis.
