Analysis of molecular diversity in Indian and Exotic genotypes of Brassica juncea using SSR markers

Published on

Molecular diversity analysis of Indian and Exotic genotypes
of Brassica juncea genotypes was carried out using simple
sequence repeat (SSR) markers. Sixteen out of 32 SSR
markers were found to be polymorphic and amplified 54
alleles in 23 genotypes with an average of 2.37 and 0.31 for
alleles per locus and polymorphic information content (PIC),
respectively. The genotypes were grouped into three distinct
clusters based on unweighted neighbour joining and
population structure analyses. The molecular analysis
revealed that markers obtained from diploid progenitors
were useful for molecular diversity studies in Brasicca
