The continuously enhanced productivity and international competitiveness of the US soybean crop will depend on applications of biotechnologies in genetic improvement. The objectives of our research are to develop a physical map of the soybean genome and to integrate the physical map with the genetic map.  

The objectives of our research are to develop a physical map of the soybean genome and to integrate the physical map with the genetic map. The ultimate goal is to significantly accelerate discovery, cloning, manipulation, and utilization of soybean genes of agronomic importance for genetic improvement and agricultural production. These achievements are now!
