Analyzing massive amounts of data, a multi-disciplinary team of University of Missouri researchers used a groundbreaking computer algorithm to find identical DNA sequences in different plant and animal species.
Better analysis may result in new medicines and improved crops
Mapping the plant's genetic code could yield healthier and more plentiful food
While it probably won't get the attention that the human genome, cow genome or even the cat genome got, the identification of the 46,000+ genes in the soybean genome could be a big deal in a world hungry for more and better food, a cleaner environment and better products. As announced in the January issue [...]
