A new released Chinese soybean genome facilitates soybean elite cultivar improvement

20:00 EDT 1 Aug 2018 | AAAS

(Science China Press) Soybean was domesticated in China and has become one of the most important oilseed crops. Due to bottlenecks in their introduction and dissemination, soybeans from different geographic areas exhibit extensive genetic diversity. Now researchers from China reported a high-quality de novo soybean genome for a Chinese soybean accession 'Zhonghuang 13.' This genome and a subsequently established comprehensive gene co-expression network facilitate important agronomic genes mining and provide valuable information for future soybean elite cultivar improvement.
