Eighty seven olive (Olea europaea ssp. sativa L.) cultivar accessions from Portugal were characterized by means of randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers. Of the 11 arbitrary 10-mer primers tested a total of 92 polymorphic bands were obtained, representing 87.6 % of the total amplification products. Twenty nine different genotypes were clearly discriminated. Differences were not found among the amplification profiles from different individuals of the same cultivar. All the genotypes… CONTINUE READING
