Analysis of DNA polymorphisms allows for the genetic identification and precise discrimination of species with a narrow genetic base such as common bean. The primary objectives of the present study were to molecularly characterize commercial common bean varieties developed at various research institutions using microsatellite markers and to determine the degree of genetic diversity among the bean varieties analyzed. Fifty cultivars representing 12 grain classes and 64 genitors, i.e., accessions used to develop these cultivars, were characterized.
