INTRA SPECIFIC ANALYSIS OF GLORIOSA SUPERBA (L) THROUGH ISSR FINGER PRINTING AND DNA SEQUENCING OF ECOTYPES COLLECTED FROM DIFFERENT ACCESSIONS OF TAMIL NADU STATE, INDIA
Diversity within and among the population of Gloriosa superba collected from five different location of Tamil Nadu State, India, were explored by using Inter Simple Sequence Repeat (ISSR) DNA sequencing method. A total of 86.27% of polymorphic bands were seen in 94 reproducible bands generated from 12 number of ISSR primer ranging between 200bp to1000bp of band width. ISSR primer produces the bands with an average polymorphism of more than ninety nine percent among all the ecotypes. The dendrograms drawn for the analysis of genetic similarity in all the ecotypes. Our studies revealed that, genetic variations among different accessions of Gloriosa superba (L) was very well identified with the help of ISSR finger printing technique.
