Research on soybean species identification related to their cold resistance abilities have proved that genetically modified soybean plants with different resistance can be characterized by different respective water absorbance pattern. It has been found that there are specific WASPs for different level of cold resistance (Jinendra 2010; Jinendra et al. 2010).
Further on, soybean mosaic virus diagnosed with near infrared spectroscopy using the aquaphotomics concept showed that for the sick plants, there was an inhibition of water absorbance at the high energy bands, i.e. less hydrogen bonded water (Jinendra 2010).
