Phenotype a soybean mapping population for environmental stress factors.
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.
