Engineering High Protein Content Soybeans

Tech ID: UA16-186

Invention:
This invention is an enabling technology to create enhanced value soybean seeds with higher proportional seed protein content.

Background:
Soybeans are the primary global source of plant-source protein. About 70% of the global protein input for animal feed is obtained from soybean. The soybean industry has a strategic goal of increasing seed protein content while preserving maximum oil content. Soybean seed protein content is regulated by genotype and can be bred as a trait, however, protein composition is far more plastic, termed proteome rebalancing, and can be significantly altered.

Status: issued U.S. patent #11,098,320

Key Benefits

- Enhanced seed protein content

Applications

- Enabling technology for future biotechnology improvements
