The main objective of this study was to investigate the efficiency of RAPD, AFLP, and SAMPL marker systems in detecting genetic polymorphism in cowpea landraces (Vigna unguiculata subsp. unguiculata (L.) Walp.) that probably share a similar genetic pool. A second objective was to determine the level of diversity among landraces from a restricted area, to define the most appropriate strategy of on-farm conservation. Each marker system was able to discriminate among the materials analysed, but a… CONTINUE READING
