In recent years, Pongamia has been considered as important renewable source of biodiesel, however not much molecular information is available in this species. Molecular characterization of this legume tree will enhance our understanding in improving the optimal yields of oil through breeding and enable us to meet the future demands for biodiesel. To assess the molecular genetic diversity in 46 Pongamia pinnata accessions collected from six different states of India, amplified fragment length… CONTINUE READING
