This thesis provides insights to molecular mechanisms and regulatory networks as related to changes in seed protein content in near-isogenic soybean lines. The insights of metabolic regulations from this study will help to point out the factors that may change overall seed composition during seed development, and guide enhancement of protein and oil accumulation in soybean. Ultimately, the understanding of metabolic regulations from this study will guide the expansion of marketability and the increase in economic value of soybean. This thesis focuses on identifying genes and proteins that are important in controlling soybean seed composition by a combination of proteomic and transcriptomic analyses of near-isogenic soybean lines differing in seed protein content.
