Molecular diversity in Saccharum complex was studied using 195 RAPD markers generated by 12 random primers. Among the Saccharum species, S. officinarum showed a low level of genetic diversity while S. sinense was found to be more diverse. Six taxonomical groups were clearly resolved in the cluster analysis. S. officinarum, S. robustum, S. spontaneum and Erianthus spp. formed discrete groups. S. barberi and S. sinense formed a single cluster, so also Narenga and Sclerostachya. S. officinarum was… CONTINUE READING
