In collaboration with the USDA Germplasm Resources Information Network (GRIN) we have developed a tool to facilitate searches of the GRIN Descriptor Data (data current as of 8/26/2015). Imputed alleles at the E1, E2 and E3 loci for the GRIN soybean germplasm collection were provided by Langewisch and Bilyeu Imputed alleles at the Pdh1 locus for the GRIN soybean germplasm collection were provided by Miranda et al.
To use the tool, select the germplasm and traits of interest to you and then click on the Preview Results button at the top or bottom of this page.
To learn more about a trait, place your mouse cursor over the trait and a description will appear.
After selecting a trait with numeric values (for example Yield) you can narrow your results further by selecting a minimum and maximum allowable value. We have pre-populated the form below with the minimum and maximum values for these traits.
Selecting a trait with discrete values (for example Maturity Group) will also give you an opportunity to further narrow your results by choosing one of the options in the drop-down that appears. This list has been pre-populated with all valid values for these traits.
