Develop and release experimental lines and varieties of soybean that are higher in protein concentration and higher in yield than current varieties.
Characterize high protein lines for the presence of the major protein quantitative trait loci (QTL; Map new QTL for high protein concentration from Glycine tomentella; Characterize protein composition and amino acid profiles of G. tomentella-derived lines and selected experimental soybean lines; and Improve seed quality in early planting soybean production system.
