The Uniform Soybean Tests, Northern Region, in place since 1941, evaluate yield, disease resistance, and quality traits of public breeding lines from northern states of the USA and Canadian provinces. The annual reports which compile the test results (PDF format) are available, and new reports are added annually.
The Uniform Soybean Tests, Southern States, in place since 1943, evaluate yield, disease resistance, and quality traits of public breeding lines from the southern states of the USA. The annual reports which compile the test results (PDF format) are available, and new reports are added annually.
Data from: Assessing metabolomic and chemical diversity of a soybean lineage representing 35 years of breeding
Information on crop genotype- and phenotype-metabolite associations can be of value to trait development as well as to food security and safety. The unique study presented here assessed seed metabolomic and ionomic diversity in a soybean (Glycine max) lineage representing ~35 years of breeding (launch…
Complete Data and Analysis for: Fungicide Effectiveness on Soybean Rust in the Southeastern United States 2004-2014: A Meta-Analysis
Soybean rust is a concern to soybean growers and management of soybean rust primarily depends on disease scouting and the timely use of fungicides. The goal of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of fungicide-use through a quantitative meta-analysis of data compiled from published and unpublished soybean fungicide trials across the southern United States from 2004 to 2014. The data included in this repository includes the complete dataset as a comma-separated-value file and all Program R code necessary to replicate the data processing, analysis, and graphing.
Environmental Association Analyses Identify Candidates for Abiotic Stress Tolerance in Glycine soja, the Wild Progenitor of Cultivated Soybeans
The present study explores an ex situ conservation collection, the USDA germplasm collection, genotyped at 32,416 SNPs, to identify population structure and test for associations with bioclimatic and biophysical variables in Glycine soja, the wild progenitor of Glycine max (soybean). Candidate loci were detected that putatively contribute to adaptation to abiotic stresses.
Data from: Draft genome sequence of Xylaria sp., the causal agent of taproot decline of soybean in the southern United States
The draft genome of Xylaria sp. isolate MSU_SB201401, causal agent of taproot decline of soybean in the southern U.S., is presented here. The genome assembly was 56.7 Mb in size with an L50 of 246. A total of 10,880 putative protein-encoding genes were predicted, including 647 genes encoding carbohydrate-active enzymes and 1053 genes encoding secreted proteins.
