Abstract:

Total 9 SSR markers were utilized to study the genetic relatedness among all thirty genotypes of turmeric. Six identified SSR markers are highly informative for genetic studies and are extremely useful in distinguishing the polymorphism rate at a specific locus in turmeric. Primer pair’s viz., 11 and 12, 5 and 6 and 13 and 14 generated higher levels of polymorphism and these could be used to differentiate turmeric genotypes under study. The molecular diversity analysis indicated presence of ample genetic diversity among the genotypes studied, which were grouped into 2 clusters. Similarity ratio revealed high degree of similarity to the extent of 100 % between genotypes NVST-80 and Pratibha, NVST-55 and GNT-2 as well as NVST-53 indicating identical finger prints due to common origin. Very low level of similarity was observed between NVST-85 and NVST-70 indicating higher amount of diversity among the genotypes.
