Research Project: Utilizing Unique Genetic Diversity to Combine Elevated Protein Concentration with High Yield in New Varieties and Experimental Lines

Location: Plant Genetics Research

Project Number: 5070-21000-040-22-R
Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Oct 1, 2018
End Date: Aug 31, 2019

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.
