Global soybean production is frequently impacted by various stresses, including both abiotic and biotic stresses. To develop soybean plants with enhanced tolerance to different stressors, functional genomics of soybean and a comprehensive understanding of available biotechnological resources and approaches are essential. In this review, we will discuss recent advances in soybean functional genomics which provide unprecedented opportunities to understand global patterns of gene expression, gene regulatory networks, various physiological, biochemical, and metabolic pathways as well as their association with the development of specific phenotypes. Soybean functional genomics, therefore, will ultimately enable us to develop new soybean varieties with improved productivity under adverse conditions by genetic engineering.
