The present study aims to investigate the genetic variation in Cinnamomum tamala Nees. (Lauraceae) accessions collected from different locations of Uttarakhand Himalaya. The leaves samples were analyzed by using RAPD and ISSR markers. A total 22 primers were used for initial screening in order to select the ones giving good amplification. Seven primers (OPA-12, OPA-18, OPB-10, OPB-17, ISSR-21, ISSR-24 and ISSR-30) were found to be polymorphic in eight accessions. Based on combined profile of… 
Evaluating genetic diversity / relatedness among superior accessions of Myristica fragrans (Nutmeg) maintained at the germplasm of Regional Agricultural Research Station, Kumarakom, Kerala, India using ISSR markers found that only 16 primers developed reproducible banding pattern.
Current Knowledge of Cinnamomum Species: A Review on the Bioactive Components, Pharmacological Properties, Analytical and Biotechnological Studies
The recent relevant scientific evidence on the botanic characterization, distribution, traditional uses, pharmacological activities, phytochemistry, qualitative and quantitative estimation and extraction of important secondary metabolites, genetic diversity assessment, biotechnological breakthroughs, cultivation, and propagation are summarized to assess future perspectives for Cinnamon as a pharmacologically leading genus of interest.


Application of RAPD and ISSR markers to analyse molecular relationships in Grevillea (Proteaceae)
The present study is the first published report on molecular relationships of Grevillea and can be considered as an initial point for further research on the genetic relationships and evolution ofGrevillea.
Characterization of cotton ( Gossypium hirsutum ) germplasm by ISSR, RAPD markers and agronomic values
Using ISSR, RAPD markers and agronomic values, the characterization of 25 cotton (G. hirsutum) germplasms was carried out and significant similarities were found in the clustering of ISSR and RAPD analysis, however, correlations were not made between the clustered of IS SR, R APD analysis and agronsomic data analysis.
Clonal diversity in the rare Calamagrostis porteri ssp. insperata (Poaceae): comparative results for allozymes and random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) and intersimple sequence repeat (ISSR) markers
Four populations of the rare, highly clonal grass Calamagrostis porteri ssp. insperata were examined using allozymes and the two polymerase chain reaction (PCR)‐based markers, random amplified
RAPD variation within and among natural populations of outcrossing willow-leaved foxglove (Digitalis obscura L.)
This is the first report of the partitioning of genetic variability within and between populations of D. obscura and provides important baseline data for optimising sampling strategies and for conserving the genetic resources of this medicinal species.
RAPD, ISSR and RFLP fingerprints as useful markers to evaluate genetic integrity of micropropagated plants of three diploid and triploid elite tea clones representing Camellia sinensis (China type) and C. assamica ssp. assamica (Assam-India type)
The rigorous screening of nuclear and two organellar genomes has demonstrated, for the first time, subtle genetic variation at the DNA sequence level in organized meristem-derived micropropagated plants of tea.
Inter-simple sequence repeats PCR for characterization of closely related grapevine germplasm
The ISSR approach revealed highly reproducible polymorphisms among the two varieties tested, and the reproducibility of the banding patterns ranged from 86 to 94 per cent, being maximum when polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and silver staining procedures were followed and weak bands discarded.
Inter simple sequence repeat (ISSR) markers as a tool for the assessment of both genetic diversity and gene pool origin in common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)
It appears that ISSR are better tools than RAPD to identify beans by gene pool of origin though they did not revealed as many differences between individuals as RAPDs.
Comparison of DNA marker technologies in characterizing plant genome diversity : Variability in Chinese sorghums
Improved varieties of Chinese sorghums were found to contain more diversity and to be more different from each other than were the Chinese landraces studied, suggesting recent introduction of non-Chinese germplasm into these improved materials.
Applicability of inter-simple sequence repeat polymorphisms in wheat for use as DNA markers in comparison to RFLP and RAPD markers
The characteristic features of ISSR markers, i.e. polymorphism, generation of information and ease of handling, suggest their applicability to the analysis of genotypes as well as to the construction of PCR-based genome maps of wheats.
