 About Glycine max / soja
  Soybean is one of the major crops for protein and oil productions in the world. The seed contains an average of 35% protein and 20% oil, and several functional ingredients such as isoflavons. The soybean originated in East Asia, where there is a rich genetic diversity in both cultivated and wild forms.
The National BioResource Project (NBRP) Legume Base is aiming to support research activities through distribution of Glycine max research resources.
