Estimation of Genetic Diversity of Four Chrysanthemum Mini Cultivars Using RAPD

J. Chatterjee , A.K. Mandal , S.A. Ranade and S.K. Datta

Abstract:
The objective of the present study was to estimate the genetic relationship among the different Chrysanthemum cultivars with relation to their morphological and biochemical characteristics and geographical distribution. DNA fingerprinting using RAPD is very easy and inexpensive way to study the genetic diversity. Genetic distance between four mini Chrysanthemum cultivars was studied through RAPD analysis. Total of 40 primers have been screened from which four have been trailed for all the four genotypes. Similarity among the cultivars was very high showing low genetic diversity, which is quite expected. One of these primers can differentiate cultivars from each other. So RAPD can be used successfully to estimate the genetic distance and also for the species identification.
