Association mapping is an alternative to mapping in a biparental population. A key to successful association mapping is to avoid spurious associations by controlling for population structure. Confirming the marker/trait association in an independent population is necessary for the implementation of the marker in other genetic studies. Two independent(More)
Multiple strategies are being developed for pest management of the soybean aphid, Aphis glycines Matsumura; however, there has been little published research thus far to determine how such strategies may influence each other, thereby complicating their potential effectiveness. A susceptible soybean (Glycine max L.) variety without the Rag1 gene and a near(More)
The single seed descent (SSD) method of inbreeding minimizes the amount of genetic sampling. The single-pod descent (SPD) and bulk methods (BM) produce redundant inbred lines that are descended from either the same F2 or F3 plant. However, for soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.], the SSD method requires more time to process the seed than the SPD or BM. Our(More)
Iron-deficiency chlorosis (IDC) is an important agronomic trait when soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) is planted on calcareous soil. Breeders need confirmation that marker-QTL (quantitative trait loci) associations developed using association mapping, will be effective in a different set of genotypes than the ones used to identify those markers. Marker-QTL(More)
