Evaluation of Watermelon Retrotransposon Elements in Melon

Saeideh Gholamzadehkhoei, Babak Abdollahi Mandoulakani and Iraj Bernousi    

Abstract: Melon (Cucumis melo L.) is an important vegetable crop in Iran and it is regarded as the most morphologically diverse species in the genus Cucumis. Study of genetic variability is very important to understand ecological adaptation of natural plant populations and to estimate of it potential for breeding. The aim of this research was to reveal most effective watermelons retrotransposon-based primers for analysis of Iranian melon population. The 25 primers were tested to find out those showing highest level of polymorphism in samples involved in the investigation. Selected primers can be applied to Iranian melon genetic resources consisting from breeding varieties and populations.
