Bean Genome Donated to USB

Monsanto says it intends to provide the United Soybean Board's (USB) Technology Utilization Center (TUC) with a series of BAC-end sequences for the soybean genome.

The sequence data will be available only to nonprofit USB Better Bean Initiative (BBI) participants that are funded through public resources. This will allow future discoveries developed using these sequences to be widely distributed in the public sector and accessible to the soybean research community.

“The development of soybean seed with enhanced traits will better position U.S. soybeans to meet the needs of oil and protein end users and improve the economic value for U.S. soybean farmers,” says Don Latham, chairman of the BBI advisory panel.
