Dr. Bo Zhang's soybean breeding research seeks to improve current and develop new soybean cultivars for the Virginia and mid-Atlantic growing region of the US. Her lab is currently working to expand herbicide tolerant soybean varieties, increase VA soybean growers' competitiveness through value-added traits in soybeans, and increase soybean yield through improved pest resistance, stress tolerance, and improved seed quality.
