Genetic diversity of Palestine landraces of faba bean (Vicia faba) based on RAPD markers
“Genetic diversity of Palestine landraces of faba bean (Vicia faba) based on RAPD markers”, vol. 12, pp. 3314-3323, 2013.,
Until now, neither phenotypic nor molecular approaches have been used to characterize the landraces of Palestine faba beans (Vicia faba). We used PCR-based RAPD markers to determine the genetic diversity and relatedness among 26 Palestinian faba bean landraces (traditional farmers' varieties) from 8 localities in the West Bank, Palestine. In tests with 37 primers, 14 generated no polymorphic bands, 12 exhibited weak and unclear products, and 11 primers produced good amplification products with high intensity and pattern stability.
