"Metabolic Engineering to Improve Soybean Seed Composition"
Soybean seeds, which contain approximately 40% protein and 20% oil, are an important source of crude vegetable oil for food and industrial uses including biodiesel. Our overall goal is to generate soybean seed quality traits that provide added value for feed, fuel, industrial and food applications.
