Soybean Genetics Newsletter


Researchers investigating isozymes in soybeans have employed both starch gel and polyacrylamide starch gel (PAGE) electrophoretic systems. Unfortunate-ly, the banding patterns that have been observed when each of these gel systems is histochemically stained for a given isozyme can be quite different. Most of the genetic work that has been done on soybean isozymes has been done on polyacrylamide starch gels (Gorman and Kiang, 1977) by Kiang and associates at the University of New Hampshire.
