  Soybean mosaic virus (SMV) causes a disease of soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] that is prevalent throughout the United States. The disease can be effectively managed through the deployment of single-dominant resistance genes known as Rsv genes that confer resistance to different strains of SMV. Pyramiding respective Rsv genes from different loci (Rsv1, Rsv3, and Rsv4) through marker-assisted selection (MAS) is an ideal method for creating durable and wide spectrum resistance to all strains of SMV. In this study, simple sequence repeat markers were used to create isogenic lines of the susceptible cultivar Essex containing one, two, or three Rsv loci for observing background and epistatic effects of Rsv1, Rsv3, and Rsv4 on inoculation with six strains of SMV. Results indicate that an Essex background or modifier genes from the donor source had effects on reactions of Rsv3 and Rsv4 genes, causing the isogenic lines to be more susceptible than the Rsv donor parents. Two-gene and three-gene isolines of Rsv1Rsv3, Rsv1Rsv4 and Rsv1Rsv3Rsv4, acted in a complementary manner, conferring resistance against all strains of SMV, whereas isolines of Rsv3Rsv4 displayed a late susceptible reaction to selected SMV strains. We demonstrate with MAS and three near-isogenic lines, each containing a different SMV-resistance gene, that pyramided lines can be generated in a straightforward manner into two- or three-gene–containing lines with high levels of resistance to SMV.

Soybean exhibits natural variation in flower and seed coat colors via the deposition of various anthocyanin pigments in the respective tissues. Although pigmentation in seeds or flowers has been well dissected at molecular level in several plant species, the genes controlling natural variation in anthocyanin traits in the soybean are not completely understood. To evaluate the genetic correlation between genetic loci and genes, 8 enzyme-encoding gene families and a transcription factor were localized in a soybean genome-wide genetic map. Among the seed coat color–controlling loci, the genetic location of the gene encoding for W1 was substantiated in the context of the current soybean molecular genetic map and O was postulated to correspond to anthocyanidin reductase. Among the genetic loci that regulate flower pigmentation, the genetic locations of the genes encoding for W1, W4, and Wp were identified, W3 was mapped on soybean linkage group B2 (chromosome 14), and W2 was postulated to correspond to an MYB transcription factor. Correlation studies between the developed markers and 3 color-controlling loci provided important empirical data that should prove useful in the design of marker-assisted breeding schemes as well as future association studies involving soybean.
