The University of Missouri (MU) has long been recognized as a leading institution for plant science research, education, crop improvement and outreach. One of the goals of the National Center for Soybean Biotechnology (NCSB) is to make available the latest research information on soybean biotechnology. Scientific publications include a newsletter, web sites, books, popular articles, and refereed publications in scientific journals. In addition, scientists located at the NCSB regularly make presentations on their latest research findings to soybean producers at field days and extension meetings, to soybean industry representatives, to certified crop advisors and many others who need to be informed on the latest information in soybean biotechnology.

  • Distinct, crucial roles of flavonoids during legume nodulation 

    Subramanian, Senthil; Stacey, Gary, 1951-; Yu, Oliver (Elsevier, 2007-06)
    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 ...
  • Genetics and functional genomics of legume nodulation 

    Stacey, Gary, 1951-; Libault, Marc; Brechenmacher, Laurent; Wan, Jinrong; May, Gregory D. (Elsevier, 2006-02)
    Gram-negative soil bacteria (rhizobia) within the Rhizobiaceae phylogenetic family (a-proteobacteria) have the unique ability to infect and establish a nitrogen-fixing symbiosis on the roots of leguminous plants. This ...
  • Proteomic Analysis of Soybean Root Hairs After Infection by Bradyrhizobium japonicum 

    Wan, Jinrong; Torres, Michael; Ganapathy, Ashwin; Thelen, Jay J.; DaGue, Beverly B.; Mooney, Brian P.; Xu, Dong, 1965-; Stacey, Gary, 1951- (APS Press, 2005-01)
    Infection of soybean root hairs by Bradyrhizobium japonicum is the first of several complex events leading to nodulation. In the current proteomic study, soybean root hairs after inoculation with B. japonicum were separated ...
