UW-Stevens Point is receiving a $150,000 grant to study the genome of the soybean.
The three year grant will pay for new research into exactly how the genes of the soybean work. Associate Professor of Biology Devinder Sandhu says his work will help unravel what makes the plant tick. "Recently the soybean genome has been sequenced, that means we know every gene in the genomes, structurally what it's made of. But the next step is connecting these genes with functions."
