Abstract:

The creation and use of molecular markers for the recognition and exploitation of DNA polymorphism is one of the most important developments in the field of molecular biology. Molecular markers, due to their consistency, low cost and effortless use have become a popular tool for a variety of applications including gene tagging, phylogenetic and genetic diversity analysis and genome mapping. Many molecular marker techniques were utilized for over a decades. However, only a few of these techniques, like RFLPs, RAPDs, AFLPs, ISSRs, SSRs and SNP shave received universal acceptance. A current revolution in DNA sequencing techniques has taken the encounter and usefulness of molecular markers to high-throughput and ultrahigh-throughput levels. Although the choice of the marker will noticeably depend on the targeted usage, microsatellites and SNPs largely fulfill many of the user’s necessities. This review is intended to be a synopsis of recent developments in molecular markers and their applications in research fields.


Keywords: Molecular markers, RAPDs, SSRs, SNPs.
