A recombinant inbred population of soybean was developed from a intraspecies cross of Kefeng1 and Nannong 1138-2. A genetic linkage group of soybean genome was constructed, which composed of 22 linkage groups, included 302 loci, covered 2 363.8cM. The interval mapping was used to identify quantitative trait loci (QLTs) associated with ten important agronomic traits in the RIL population. The results indicated that thirty-four QTLs were detected for the ten traits associated with yield and seed quality. We conclude that QTL analysis offers a useful tool for the genetic improvement of soybean cultivars.
