Moving Soybean to Western Canada, Attempt to Identify the Underlying Gene for the E7 Maturity Locus
Arezo Pattang, Elroy Cober, Stephen J. Molnar, Ashkan Golshani, Bahram Samanfar: Moving Soybean to Western Canada and Northern Regions, an Attempt to Identify the Underlying Gene for the E7 Maturity Locus. Carleton University Life science day 4.1, 2021 Canada; and 18th Annual OCIB, Ottawa Carleton Institute of Biology Symposium, 2021 Canada.
The expansion of soybean to North Western regions of Canada is dependent on factors including time of flowering and maturity. Currently, among the maturity loci identified the underlying gene for E7 remains unknown. Through the integration of various -omics approaches, a short list of candidate genes on chromosome 6 are to be examined. So far, only one has shown to contain an amino acid variation between E7 /e7 genotypes. While sequencing data for all candidates has yet to be released, follow up experiments, including expression analysis, and compensation analysis will be performed.
