Abstract: 
The nutritional value of soybean oil is largely influenced by the proportions of unsaturated fatty acids (FAs), including oleic acid (OA, 18:1), linoleic acid (LLA, 18:2), and linolenic acid (LNA, 18:3). Genome-wide association (GWAS) studies along with gene expression studies in soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] were leveraged to dissect the genetics of unsaturated FAs.
