Abstract The soybean aphid, Aphis glycines Matsumura (Hemiptera: Aphididae) is a serious pest of the soybean plant, Glycine max, a major world-wide agricultural crop. We assembled a de novo genome sequence of Ap. glycines Biotype 1, from a culture established shortly after this species invaded North America. 20.4% of the Ap. glycines proteome is duplicated. These in-paralogs are enriched with Gene Ontology (GO) categories mostly related to apoptosis, a possible adaptation to plant chemistry and ...

To inform possibility of conducting marker assisted breeding of promiscuous soybean varieties, this study used 92 F2 lines from biparental cross to identify QTLs associated with promiscuous nodulation in soybean. GBS; genotyping by sequencing platform was used to generate SNPs through the pipeline 2 in TASSEL 5.0, Bowtie2 version 2.2.8 for tag alignment, Beagle version 4.1 to impute missing SNPs and R-QTL package in R for QTL identification. Four nodulation traits were assessed viz number of nod...

Soybean, Glycine max (L.) Merr., has been grown as a forage and as an important protein and oil crop for thousands of years. Domestication, breeding improvements and enhanced cropping systems have made soybeans the most cultivated and utilized oilseed crop globally. Soybeans provide a high-quality protein source for livestock and aquaculture, oil for industrial uses and a valued component of human diets. Originating in China and Eastern Asia, today 80–85% of the world’s soybeans, approximately 8...

Soybean is the world’s leading source of vegetable protein and demand for its seed continues to grow. Breeders have successfully increased soybean yield, but the genetic architecture of yield and key agronomic traits is poorly understood. We developed a 40-mating soybean nested association mapping (NAM) population of 5,600 inbred lines that were characterized by single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers and six agronomic traits in field trials in 22 environments. Analysis of the yield, agrono...

N-ethylmaleimide sensitive factor (NSF) and α-soluble NSF attachment protein (α-SNAP) are essential eukaryotic housekeeping proteins that cooperatively function to sustain vesicular trafficking. The “resistance to Heterodera glycines 1” ( Rhg1 ) locus of soybean ( Glycine max ) confers resistance to soybean cyst nematode, a highly damaging soybean pest. Rhg1 loci encode repeat copies of atypical α-SNAP proteins that are defective in promoting NSF function and are cytotoxic in certain contexts. H...
