Application of molecular markers for the analysis of genetic diversity and systematics

APPLICATION OF MOLECULAR MARKERS FOR THE ANALYSIS OF GENETIC DIVERSITY AND SYSTEMATICS

Abstract
Analysis of genetic diversity is carried out using a variety of tools and techniques, however due to its accuracy, the use of molecular markers find much popularity. Such studies often hold diverse applications in the fields of utilisation of genetic resources, molecular taxonomy and conservation of biological materials. There are many reports available which deal with the use of protein/DNA markers in edible mushrooms. Oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus sp.) are one of the popular edible mushrooms in the tropics thoroughly studied mainly to scrutinise speculated position of many species and genotypic classes. The present review discusses on the application of isozyme and RAPD markers for the analysis of genetic diversity and systematics of Pleurotus sp.
