What is SoyFACE?

  • Soybean Free Air Concentration Enrichment
  • Field conditions mimic the future's atmosphere, temperature, and soil
  • Connect physiological responses of crops under these conditions to their genes (aka mapping)

What is a recombinant inbred line population?

Method for mapping traits

  • Two parents with variance in a certain trait (in this case, response to elevated carbon dioxide)
  • The parents used: HS93-4118 and Loda
  • Allows understanding of what regions (quantitative trait loci) respond to atmospheric change
