Genetic Variation in Iranian Mints on the Bases of RAPD Analysis

Soheila Momeni, Behrouz Shiran and Khorshid Razmjoo    

Abstract: In the present study, the genetic diversity and taxonomic relationships between 17 accessions of four Mentha species were examined using RAPD markers and analysed the data by both similarity methods and principal coordinate analysis. Out of 70 primers, provided reproducible results. A total of 608 reliable and polymorphic RAPD bands were detected which used to estimate genetic similarity among pair-wise combinations of accessions. High genetic diversity was found within Mentha accessions. Jaccard`s similarity value ranged from 0.13 to 0.69, with mean of 0.25, which reflects a rather high genetic variability among the accessions evaluated. The result indicated that RAPD as a molecular marker was useful for detecting the genetic variation among the accessions. According to our analysis, M. piperita14 is about 0.45 similar to M. spicata10 are clustered in the same group. The clustering between these two accessions is in agreement with the earlier observations.
