Genetic diversity among watermelon (Citrullus lanatus and Citrullus colocynthis) accessions

  title={Genetic diversity among watermelon (Citrullus lanatus and Citrullus colocynthis) accessions},
  author={Amnon Levi and Claude E. Thomas and Anthony P Keinath and Todd C. Wehner},
  journal={Genetic Resources and Crop Evolution},
Genetic diversity was estimated among 42 U.S. PlantIntroduction (PI) accessions of the genusCitrullus (of these, 34 PIs are reported tohave disease resistance), and 5 watermelon cultivars, using 30RAPD primers. These primers produced 662 RAPD markers that could berated with high confidence. Based on these markers, geneticsimilarity coefficients were calculated and a dendrogram wasconstructed using the unweighted pair-group method witharithmetic average (UPGMA). The analysis delineated… CONTINUE READING
