Variation in Capsicum annuum revealed by RAPD and AFLP markers

  title={Variation in Capsicum annuum revealed by RAPD and AFLP markers},
  author={Ilan Paran and Ester Aftergoot and Chen Shifriss},
Genetic relationships were examined among thirty-four pepper (Capsicum annuum) cultivars of different types. Two types of PCR-based markers were used, RAPD and AFLP, and their relative effectiveness was compared. A dendrogram based on RAPD markers separated the large-fruited sweet cultivars from the small-fruited pungent peppers, and the former group showed less divergence than the latter. The percentage of polymorphic markers was lower for AFLP than for RAPD markers (13 and 22% respectively… CONTINUE READING
