How Stresseing Beans Now Could Improve Yields Later

A recent article on the Penn State News website highlights a genetic soybean discovery that may alter breeding practices. By turning off the expression of the gene MSH1, a soybean plant will be ‘tricked’ into experiencing stressors like extreme temperature or moisture conditions despite real conditions to the contrary. The plant responds by over-expressing defensive genes that can be seen in subsequent generations of the variety. The discovery means soybean breeders could improve the yields of existing varieties (13-14% increases were observed in trials) by changing gene expression instead of more complicated  (and controversial) genetic engineering techniques that add genes.
