  • Patent number: 10667478
    Abstract: Methods for conveying metribuzin resistance and/or tolerance into non-resistant soybean germplasm are provided. In some embodiments, the methods include introgressing metribuzin 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 metribuzin resistance and/or tolerance. Also provided are single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with resistance or tolerance to metribuzin. Soybean plants and seeds produced by any of the disclosed methods are provided.

  • Patent number: 10253379
    Abstract: Methods for conveying Phytophthora sojae resistance into non-resistant soybean germplasm are provided. In some embodiments, the methods include introgressing Phytophthora sojae 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 Phytophthora sojae resistance. Also provided are single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with resistance to pathogens; 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 to be used in selecting or identifying Phytophthora sojae resistant soybean lines.
