  • Publication number: 20200229366
    Abstract: Methods for conveying soybean rust (SBR) resistance into non-resistant soybean germplasm are provided. In some embodiments, the methods include introgressing SBR resistance into a non-resistant soybean using one or more nucleic acid markers for marker-assisted breeding among soybean lines to be used in a soybean breeding program, wherein the markers are linked to and/or associated with SBR resistance. Also provided are single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with resistance to SBR; soybean plants, seeds, and tissue cultures produced by any of the disclosed methods; seed produced by the disclosed soybean plants; and compositions including amplification primer pairs capable of initiating DNA polymerization by a DNA polymerase on soybean nucleic acid templates to generate soybean marker amplicons.
