Meeting Report: Soybean Genomics Assessment and Strategy Workshop
(Soybean Genomics Assessment and Strategy Workshop 19 - 20 July 2005 St. Louis, Missouri, 2005-07)
Soybean Board. The workshop began with a series of presentations by experts in the topics discussed below. Each presentation was designed to update the audience on the current status of soybean resources and related genomics technologies. Following...
Agricultural Applications of Biotechnology and the Potential for Biodiversity Valorization in Latin America and the Caribbean
This article provides a brief account of key developments in agricultural applications of biotechnology in Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) countries; it also focuses on the potential of developing value-added products ...
Pricing of Herbicide-Tolerant Soybean Seeds: A Market-Structure Approach
This article investigates the effects of supply-side factors on the pricing of soybean seeds in the United States. We discuss recent trends that have shaped the US soybean seed market. Using an econometric model, we also analyze the impacts...
The role of biofuel policy and biotechnology in the development of the ethanol industry in the United States
The US Renewable Fuel Standard sets a lower bound on the amount of biofuels used, with consequences for behavior of agricultural commodity markets that currently supply the vast majority of feedstocks for biofuel production. ...
Emerging IP Markets: The Tokyo Grain Exchange Non-GMO Soybean Contract
This research provides an overview of the development of the Tokyo Grain Exchange non-GMO soybean contract as an identity preserved futures contract. The development of this contract is unique, relative to the development of other new futures...
Sulfur metabolism in Glycine max [L.] Merr : characterization of serine acetyletransferase and O-acetylserine (thiol) lyase
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
Soybean (Glycine max [L.] Merr) is considered an excellent protein source for both humans and livestock. Further improvement of quantity and quality of soybean protein is vital for maintaining the utility of this versatile plant derived nutrient...
Soybean seed components as affected by nodal position, environmental conditions, and irrigation
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2005)
such as isoflavones, which are present in soybeans, have been shown to impact human health. Genetics, environmental conditions, and agronomic practices have a bearing on accumulation of each of these seed components. Work presented here reveals that the constituents...
Molecular cloning and characterization of regulatory enzymes in threonine biosynthetic pathway from soybean
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
Soybeans (Glycine max [L.] Merr.) are a good source of protein and oil. Despite being a very good source of protein, soybeans nutritional value is limited by low proportion of sulfur amino acids methionine and cysteine demanding supplementation...
Modification of fatty acid composition in soybean seeds to improve soybean oil quality and functionality
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
The purpose of this project is to modify the fatty acid composition in soybean seeds to improve soybean oil quality and functionality. By sequencing the FAD2-1A and FAD2-1B genes in 24 plant introductions, we identified two novel mutant alleles: one...
Development of high protein soybean experimental lines with enhanced sulfur amino acid content
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2019)
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] Soybean is one of the most important field crops grown in the United States. Commercial soybeans contain about 36 - 40% protein and 18 - 20% oil, by dry weight. Most...
Distinct, crucial roles of flavonoids during legume nodulation
RNA interference-mediated silencing of the key flavonoid and isoflavone biosynthesis enzyme, respectively, by two different research groups has provided direct genetic evidence for the essential roles that these compounds ...
The University of Missouri Center for Sustainable Energy
. The MU Center for Sustainable Energy serves as a single, central portal for access to the full resources of the University of Missouri the goal of addressing the energy challenges that face our state and nation....
Characterization of a diverse USDA collection of wild soybean (glycine soja siebold & zucc.) accessions and subsequent mapping for seed composition and agronomic traits in a RIL population
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2018)
been undertaken to introduce novel genetic diversity present in wild soybean (Glycine soja Siebold & Zucc.) into new elite cultivars, in both public and private applied soybean breeding programs. The objectives of this research were to evaluate...
Molecular characterization of soybean resistance to soybean cyst nematode
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
The soybean cyst nematode, Heterodera glycines, is a devastating pathogen to soybean worldwide. This obligate parasite establishes specialized feeding cells within host roots that are required for completion of the nematode life cycle. In resistant...
Adoption and diffusion of agrobiotechnologies in the US cotton production
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2004)
The study examines the farm level adoption and county level diffusion of three cotton biotechnologies in the US: insect resistant (Bollgard®), herbicide tolerance (Roundup Ready®), and stacked trait (Bollgard® & Roundup Ready®). Adoption...
Demonstration of highly efficient dual gRNA CRISPR/Cas9 editing of the homeologous GmFAD2-1A and GmFAD2-1B genes to yield a high oleic, low linoleic and ?-linolenic acid phenotype in soybean
(BioMed Central Ltd., 2019)
Background: CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing is now revolutionizing the ability to effectively modify plant genomes in the absence of efficient homologous recombination mechanisms that exist in other organisms. However, soybean is allotetraploid...
Establishment of a protein reference map for soybean root hair cells
(American Society of Plant Biologists, 2008)
infection process, and also lead to improvements in plant water and nutrient uptake. We analyzed the proteome of isolated soybean (Glycine max) root hair cells using two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2D-PAGE) and shotgun proteomics (1D...
GMO: Questions and Answers
