Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: In the last twenty years, over 40 resistance genes (R-genes) have been cloned and characterized from plants. Of these, only three have been cloned in soybean. Cloning of resistance genes in soybean has been hampered by a complex, duplicated genome, clustering of R-genes, and lack of tools to characterize candidate genes. Nevertheless, significant strides have been made in understanding soybean’s response to pathogen and insect attack. This review will highlight significant research advances made in studying resistance to Soybean Cyst Nematode, Asian Soybean Rust, Phytopthora Stem and Root Rot and Soybean Aphid.
