Abstract:

Sorghum bicolor is most important cereal crops around the world where the availability of water is less. Study of genetic variability among the sorghum accessions will enable accurate results in breeding programme and in mapping studies. By using SSR markers evenly distributed on sorghum genome revealed that, all the 20 accessions originated from Marathwada (Maharashtra) region were grouped into three main classes and it show correlation with the biological status and other characteristics features of accessions. The gene diversity measured in term of polymorphic information content (PIC) was ranged between 0.41 to 0.63 with the average PIC value was found to be 0.53 where 0.41 PIC value indicated presence of three allele per locus. The SSR loci Xtxp278, msbCIR276, Xisep0310, Xtxp321, Xtxp141 and Xtxp145 were rich in allelic diversity exhibiting highest PIC value. Expected heterozygosity or Gene diversity computed according to Nei (1973) and varied from 0.46 to 0.68 with an average of 0.60.
