By Kristin Bilyeu,Milind B. Ratnaparkhe,Chittaranjan Kole

The soybean is an economically very important leguminous seed crop for feed and foodstuff items that's wealthy in seed protein (about forty percentage) and oil (about 20 percent); it enriches the soil via solving nitrogen in symbiosis with micro organism.


Soybean was once domesticated in northeastern China approximately 2500 BC and for this reason unfold to different international locations. the large fiscal price of soybean used to be learned within the first 20 years of the 20 th century, with international construction of soybean tripling within the final twenty years. as well as human intake, it's a significant protein resource in animal feeds and is turning into a big crop for biodiesel creation. within the overseas alternate markets, soybean is ranked no 1 on the planet one of the significant oil vegetation.


For many many years, plant breeders have used traditional breeding concepts to enhance soybeans. whereas soybean creation keeps to extend as call for for soybeans and soybean items raises, there's a desire for extra subtle ideas. Bridging conventional examine with smooth molecular investigations on soybean, this quantity explores the new advances in soybean genome mapping, molecular breeding, genomics, sequencing, and bioinformatics. The ebook may be necessary to soybean researchers in addition to researchers operating with different crop species.
