Brief Project Summary:

The goal of this research project is to use new biotechnology methods to improve soybean germplasm. The research group is using gene transfer technology for introducing novel genes and output traits that will complement the University of Nebraska's soybean breeding program. Unique gene transfer techniques are being used to develop transgenic soybeans with several value-added traits. Some of these novel traits that are resistant toward diseases, have elevated levels of specific fatty acids in the seed, have genes for minimizing environmental stresses and have other unique genes that will expand the utility of soybeans in food, feed and industrial use applications.

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.
