Brief Project Summary:

The project's goal is to develop useful molecular markers that can identify IDC efficient genotypes and use state of the art genomic technologies to identify genes involved in IDC efficiency or inefficiency. The ultimate goal of the research is to isolate candidate genes and develop markers for these genes that will aid the soybean breeder in developing IDC resistant varieties.

Progress includes a whole genome-scan with over 250 advanced breeding lines that was completed. These represent lines grown in 2005 and 2006. The genotypic data from the scan was coupled with phenotypic data collected from the field, and an association mapping analysis that was performed. The goal was to see...

Final Project Results

The United Soybean Research Retention policy will display final reports with the project once completed but working files will be purged after three years. And financial information after seven years. All pertinent information is in the final report or if you want more information, please contact the project lead at your state soybean organization or principal investigator listed on the project.
