With the rapid development of genetically modified soybean technology, the study of genetically modified soybean has also become one of the research hotspots in plant molecular biology at home and abroad. As a new technology, genetically modified soybean has attracted wide attention from the library community at home and abroad. Many researchers have done a lot of research on various aspects of the field of genetically modified soybeans from various perspectives. These studies have played an important role in guiding the actual development of genetically modified soybean technology. Based on this, quickly and accurately grasping domestic and foreign research hotspots and cutting-edge trends in a large amount of disordered research data is a vital link in the research and development of genetically modified soybeans. This article focuses on the analysis of library knowledge maps based on CiteSpace's research on genetically modified soybeans. This article is based on the research status of GM soybeans in China and the world, and aims to address the problems existing in the development of GM soybeans in China, and draws on relevant experiences and developments in this field in the world. It provides a certain theoretical basis for Chinese scholars to grasp the scientific research dynamics of genetically modified soybeans and opens up new research fields. According to the experimental analysis in this paper, we can see that there are many institutions in China that research genetically modified soybeans, and the degree of cooperation between them is low. There are many authoritative institutions and universities in Northeast China and Beijing. Institutions in this field are closely connected worldwide, and scientific research forces have made tremendous contributions to the research of genetically modified soybeans.
