Genetic diversity of agricultural crops

Molecular markers now have been accepted as important techniques for plant genome analysis and screening of complex characters in the plant breeding program. Several molecular markers are being routinely used to explore the diversity of agricultural and horticultural crops grown in the central part of Iran; however, particular attention is directed to genetic analysis of Iranian native crops such as pistachio, pomegranate, date palm and safflower which have been neglected by scientific communities. Current research programs are focused on the development of microsatellite markers for indigenous crops and their use in genotyping, germplasm characterization, population genetics and management of genetic resources.
