Detection of Genetic Variability using Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA Markers in Some Accessions of Moringa oleifera Lam. from Northern Nigeria

B.Y. Abubakar, R. Wusirika, S. MuA`zu, A.U. Khan and A.K. Adamu    

Abstract: To investigate genetic variability in Moringa oleifera Lam., 75 accessions from the Sudan and Guinea savanna zones in Nigeria were taxonomically analysed using Random Amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers. The electrophoresis bands were analysed using NTSYSpc software and the result of their matrices indicated different variability in the accessions. High degrees of polymorphism (74%) among the accessions were observed in terms of genetic relationship and were grouped into five clusters. This high variability can be utilised for mapping out breeding strategies in the production of cultivars with better yield of M. oleifera to meet the pressing needs of these multi-purpose crop to our growing populations.
