Our mission is to improve the quality of soybeans, beans, and wheat for farmers and consumers in America and around the world. We map agronomic traits and discover genes controlling seed quality, disease resistance, stress tolerance, and productivity. We also maintain the National Rhizobium Germplasm Resource Collection, and provide electron microscopy diagnostic and research support to collaborating scientists at universities, companies, and government agencies.
