We studied the phase structures of N=1 supersymmetric SO(Nc) gauge theory with Nf flavors in the vector representation as we deformed the N=2 supersymmetric QCD by adding the superpotential of arbitrary polynomial for the adjoint chiral scalar field. Using weak and strong coupling analyses, we determined the most general factorization forms for various breaking patterns. We observed all kinds of smooth transitions for quartic superpotential.
