Abstract

BACKGROUND: In recent years, DNA-based markers have been used quite extensively because of their many advantages over the traditional morphological and biochemical markers. Many studies have shown that molecular markers are useful in delineating the genetic relationships among closely related mulberry genotypes and cultivars. Thus, in the present study, polymer chain reaction based DNA fingerprinting techniques were used to investigate the genetic relationships among mulberry genotypes growing in different agro-climatic regions of Turkey.
