Abstract:   (4631 Views)
Apricot (Prunus armenica L.), a fruit species of the family Rosaceae, genus Prunus L., is widely distributed in the Mediterranean region and the Middle East, especially in Iran. Suitable climatic conditions for apricot production and its economic importance were the main reasons for its vast area under cultivation and diversity. We studied genetic diversity of eighty three apricot genotypes and cultivars collected from new Iranian and Czech Republic collections using SSR markers. The objectives of this study were to determine the genetic structure and genotypic diversity among different eco-geographical populations. Based on the results, the UD5 marker was indicated the high level of polymorphism. In addition genotypes classified into five groups which was independent of their origin.
