DNA Fingerprinting and assessment of genetic diversity in horticultural crops germplasm






  • To generate the DNA fingerprints of released varieties of horticultural crops, germplasm and hybrids
  • To assess the genetic diversity of horticultural crops germplasm.
  • To generate a database of DNA fingerprints of horticultural crops germplasm
  • To evaluate the extent of genetic diversity in the horticultural crops germplasm and

DNA fingerprinting/Molecular characterization of released varieties was done for following ornamental crops using ISSR/SSR markers.

  1. Rose: G.S. Randhawa, Kiran and Nishkant
  2. Crossandra : Arka kanaka, Arka ambara; 2 Hybrids -2005-1 and 2005-2.
  3. Carnation : Arka Flame
  4. Tuberose:    Shringar, Suvasini, Prajwal, Vybhav, Niranthara  
  5. Molecular characterization of 30 genotypes of Gladiolus.
