SoyBase and the Soybean Breeder's Toolbox

Metadata Updated: September 21, 2023

SoyBase is a repository for genetics, genomics and related data resources for soybean. It contains current genetic, physical and genomic sequence maps integrated with qualitative and quantitative traits. SoyBase database was established in the 1990s as the USDA Soybean Genetics Database. Originally, it contained only genetic information about soybeans such as genetic maps and information about the Mendelian genetics of soybean. In time SoyBase was expanded to include molecular data regarding soybean genes and sequences as they became available. In 2010, the soybean genome sequence was published and it and supporting gene sequences have been integrated into the SoyBase sequence browser. SoyBase genetic maps were used in the assembly of both the Williams 82 2010 assembly (Wm82.a1.v1) and the newest genome assembly (Wm82.a2.v1). SoyBase also incorporates information about mutant and other soybean genetic stocks and serves as a contact point for ordering strains from those populations. As association analyses continue due to various re-sequencing efforts SoyBase will also incorporate those data into the soybean genome browser as they become available. Gene expression patterns are also available at SoyBase through the SoyBase expression pages and the Soybean Gene Atlas. Other expression/transcriptome/methylomic data sets also have been and continue to be incorporated into the SoyBase genome browser. Project No:3625-21000-062-00D Accession No: 0425040
