Glycine max (soybean) is one of the most important crop plants for seed protein and oil content. As a member of the plant family Leguminosae, soybean also has the capacity to fix atmospheric nitrogen through symbioses with soil-borne microorganisms.

The species originated in South East Asia, with the main areas of production today being in North America, South America and China. It is the world's most important legume crop and ranks sixth of all cultivated crops in terms of total harvest.

The reference proteome for Glycine max is derived from the genome published in 2010. Glycine max has a haploid chromosome number of 10 and is an ancient polyploid (palaeopolyploid) with over 50% more protein-coding genes than Arabidopsis, and 75% of the genes occurring as multiple copies. About 80% of the predicted genes are found in chromosome ends, which comprise less than one-half of the genome but account for nearly all of the genetic recombination. The soybean genome contains 1 Gb with 64,000 protein-coding genes, which is eight times larger than the Arabidopsis genome.
