Annual wild soybean (Glycine soja Sieb. et Zucc.) is believed to be a potential gene source for future soybean improvement in coping with the world climate change for food security. To evaluate the wild soybean genetic diversity and differentiation, we analyzed allelic profiles at 60 simple-sequence repeat (SSR) loci and variation of eight morph-biological(More)
Determining mitochondrial genomes is important for elucidating vital activities of seed plants. Mitochondrial genomes are specific to each plant species because of their variable size, complex structures and patterns of gene losses and gains during evolution. This complexity has made research on the soybean mitochondrial genome difficult compared with its(More)
Association mapping (AM) combined with linkage mapping (LM) was executed to identify molecular markers and QTL regions associated with aluminum (Al) tolerance using relative root elongation (RRE) in hydroponics as an indicator. A set of 188 soybean cultivars released in Yellow and Changjiang River Valleys and 184 recombinant inbred lines (RIL) derived from(More)
Bean pyralid (BP; Lamprosema indicata Fabricius) is one of the major leaf-feeding insects that affect soybean crops in central and southern China. Four recombinant inbred line populations (KY, WT, XG and SX) were tested during 2004–2006 in Nanjing, China, to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) for resistance to BP on the basis of data for rolled leaflet(More)
From a preliminary experiment on 98 Chinese soybean varieties, 12 varieties with somatic embryogenesis frequency ranging from 0.0% to 85.7% were selected for further study in order to enhance the efficiency of somatic embryogenesis and plant regeneration. The effects of different mannitol concentrations, abscisic acid (ABA) concentrations, and embryo(More)
The relative importance of various types of quantitative trait locus (QTL) conferring oil content and its fatty acid components in soybean seeds was assessed through testing a recombinant inbred line (RIL) population (derived from KF1 × NN1138-2) in randomized blocks experiments in 2004–2006. The contents of oil and oleic, linoleic, linolenic, palmitic and(More)
Phytophthora sojae is an oomycete soil-borne plant pathogen that causes the serious disease Phytophthora root rot in soybean, leading to great loss of soybean production every year. Understanding the genetic basis of this plant–pathogen interaction is important to improve soybean disease resistance. To discover genes or QTLs underlying naturally occurring(More)
It is well accepted that somatic embryogenesis serves a primary role in plant regeneration. However, it is also a model system to explore the regulatory and morphogenetic events in the life of a plant. To date, a suite of genes that serve important roles in somatic embryogenesis have been isolated and identified. In the present study, a novel gene(More)
Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) that control the tissue culture response in soybean were detected by using 184 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) derived from two varieties: Kefeng No.1 and Nannong 1138-2. The molecular map consisting of 834 molecular markers using this population covered space 2307.83 cM of the genome throughout 24 linkage groups. The(More)
A representative sample comprising 366 accessions from the Chinese soybean landrace population (CSLRP) was tested under four growth environments for determination of the whole-genome quantitative trait loci (QTLs) system of the 100-seed weight trait (ranging from 4.59g to 40.35g) through genome-wide association study (GWAS). A total of 116 769 single(More)
