• CRISPR/Cas9‐mediated gene editing of GmJAGGED1 increased yield in the low latitude soybean variety Huachun 6

    The number of seeds per pod is one of the critical components that affect soybean yield. Ln, which encodes GmJAGGED1 , is a major locus regulating NSPP and leaflet shape in soybean. A single base-pair substitution of Ln locus from guanine to cytosine led to an amino acid change in the conserved EAR motif of GmJAG1, resulting in the loss-of-function of GmJAG1 and ln. ln can significantly increase NSPP and has been widely used in soybean breeding.
