Functional genomics studies play very important roles in gene discoveries and genetic improvements in soybean (Glycine max). Reverse genetics plays a unique role in soybean functional genomics, which would be impossible to achieve through either forward genetics or other conventional genetic approaches.
To date, soybean genomics research has already entered post-genome era, as the soybean genome sequencing comes to a completion and functions of its sequences at whole genome level remain to be verified. This task requires high-throughput and simple means of functional analysis of soybean genes. This book discusses and presents research in soybean functional genomic studies. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
