Seed-size traits, which are controlled by multiple genes in soybean, play an important role in determining seed yield, quality and appearance. However, the molecular mechanisms controlling the size of soybean seeds remain unclear, and little research has been done to investigate these mechanisms. In this study, we performed a genetic analysis to determine(More)
Soybean is one of the most economically important crops in the world. The cotyledon is the nutrient storage area in seeds, and it is critical for seed quality and yield. Cotyledon mutants are important for the genetic dissection of embryo patterning and seed development. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying soybean cotyledon development are largely(More)
The gene mel1, encoding α-galactosidase in Schizosaccharomyces pombe, and the gene bgl2, encoding and α-glucosidase in Trichoderma reesei, were isolated and co-expressed in the industrial ethanolproducing strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The resulting strains were able to grow on cellobiose and melibiose through simultaneous production of sufficient(More)
