Genetic Diversity in Hordeum spontaneum C. Koch of Northern Jordan (Ajloun Area) as Revealed by RAPD and AFLP Markers

M.G. AL-Saghir, H.I. Malkawi and A. EL-Oqlah    

Abstract: The objectives of this study were to locate and collect wild barley accessions of the species (Hordeum spontaneum C. Koch) from certain regions in northern Jordan (Ajloun area) to characterize the molecular diversity of the collected barley accessions by analyzing the DNA amplification products using AFLP and RAPD molecular marker methodologies; evaluate the AFLP and RAPD methods to be used in barley as genetic markers and improve such techniques as suitable strategies for barley germplasm characterization. Fifty samples representing five populations of Hordeum spontaneum C. Koch from northern Jordan (Ajloun area) were included in this study and were subjected to RAPD and AFLP molecular markers analysis. Twenty-seven RAPD primers produced 288 amplification products of which 90 (31.3%) were polymorphic and six AFLP primers produced 300 amplification products of which 155 (51.7%) were polymorphic. Genetic diversity was larger among than within populations.
