Information And Results
Project Deliverables

Soybean producers will eventually possess improved soybean cultivars based on the novel traits developed by this project. We will generate new mutations for soybean genes known to be involved in seed protein, amino acid, oil and/or fatty acid composition. These will add new germplasm for breeders interested in incorporating new or different seed composition traits in their breeding programs.

The training workshops will expand the use of precision genomics throughout the soybean community, resulting in a greater number of targeted mutations that will be available for soybean breeders’ efforts at developing and adapting to new markets for producers. U.S. scientists trained in the precision genomics technologies will enable these approaches to be used for a wide range of traits and applications in the future.

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.
