Soybean (Glycine max) is a photoperiod-sensitive and self-pollinated species. Days to flowering (DTF) and maturity (DTM), duration of flowering-to-maturity (DFTM) and plant height (PH) are crucial for soybean adaptability and yield. To dissect the genetic architecture of these agronomically important traits, a population consisting of 309 early maturity(More)
Twenty-two loci for soybean SW and candidate genes conditioning seed development were identified; and prediction accuracies of GS and MAS were estimated through cross-validation and validation with unrelated populations. Soybean (Glycine max) is a major crop for plant protein and oil production, and seed weight (SW) is important for yield and quality in(More)
Soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) is a major source of plant protein for humans and livestock. Deficiency of sulfur-containing amino acids (cysteine and methionine) in soybean protein is a main limitation of soybean meal as an animal feed ingredient. The objectives of this study were to identify and validate quantitative trait loci (QTLs) associated with(More)
