Microsatellite based genotyping and assessment of genetic divergence in upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum)

Published on

Nineteen upland cotton genotypes were evaluated for
genetic divergence for development of desirable hybrids.
Based on twelve phenotypic markers D
2 analysis identified
five clusters containing one to ten genotypes. Prinipal
Component Aanalysis reduced the twelve variables into
four principal components explaining 82.2% variability that
clearly indicated the genotypes, H1236, H1472, CSH 3075,
ISR 12, H1465 and H1117 were high yielder and H 1236, H
1472, H 1156 and H1476 were having better seed indices
traits. Out of 49 SSR primers, 42 were polymorphic and
amplified 173 alleles with PIC value ranged from 0 to 0.948.
The NTSYS-pc UPGMA analysis clustered into seven distinct
