100-Seed weight (100-SW) of soybean is an important but complicated quantitative trait to yield. This study was focus on the quantitative trait loci (QTLs) of soybean 100-SW from 2006 to 2010, using recombination inbred lines population that was derived from a cross between Charleston and Dongnong 594. A total of 23 QTLs for 100-SW were detected in the linkage group C2, D1a, F, G and O. Nine QTLs were identified by composite interval mapping including one QTL with the minimum confidence interval (CI) of 1.3 cM, while 14 QTLs by multiple interval mapping. Furthermore, 94 reported QTLs of 100-SW were integrated with our QTL mapping results using BioMercator. As a result, 15 consensus QTLs and their corresponding markers were identified. The minimum CI was reduced to 1.52 cM by the combination of meta-analysis. These findings may merit fine-mapping of these QTL in soybean.
