Brief Project Summary:

This research program brings together a multidisciplinary approach for the creation and evaluation of novel input and output traits in soybean. These include a gene stack combination to enhance photosynthetic capacity, which we are targeting specifically during reproduction stages under both stress and non-stress environments, and a unique genetic design for the production of a value enhanced soybean oil. Importantly, this program translates the novel soybean created from greenhouse to field environments, to down-stream end-use characterizations as exemplified by current and past traits developed under this program including high oleic acid soybean (biodiesel) and high omega-3 soybean oils...

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.
