DNA polymorphisms are the markers of choice for the identification and characterization of plants. They are an integral part of the plant and they are not subject to environmental modification. There are relatively reliable, generally applicable methods to obtain large samples of markers from any species of plant. However, each marker system sample...


... Screening for drought tolerance and diversity among different cultivars based on morphological characterization is not enough, as these traits are more sensitive to environmental changes (Fufa et al., 2005). Therefore, the DNA molecular markers have been used as an accurate tool that are not influenced by environmental effects (Bachmann et al., 2001;Tatikonda et al., 2009). In addition, they can easily detect polymorphism that may result from nucleotide change or mutation in the genome loci (Hartl and Clark, 1997). ...
