Seventy cocoyam accessions collected from the eastern and Volta regions of Ghana were studied using RAPD technique. Ten primers were used to study the genetic diversity and structure of the experimental material and a total of 120 different bands were detected. Levels of polymorphic fragments detected by the ten primers ranged from 69.2% to 100%. In the accessions from the eastern region, the mean observed and effective number of alleles per individual per population and mean Nei's gene… CONTINUE READING
