The genetic diversity of sorghum, as compared to corn, is less well characterized at the genetic and molecular levels despite its worldwide economic importance. The objectives of this study were to: (1) investigate genetic diversity for restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLPs) and random amplified polymorphic DNAs (RAPDs) in elite sorghum lines, (2) compare similarities based on molecular markers with pedigree relationships, and (3) examine the potential of RFLPs and RAPDs for assigning… CONTINUE READING
