Abstract:
Bajra also known as bulrush or cattail millet belonging to the family Poaceae is a multipurpose cereal which is grown for both grain and fodder. Among 60 genotypes of pearl millet, DNA was extracted from best selected genotypes of pearl millet by CTAB extraction method. Out of 60 primers used, 30 polymorphic markers have been identified in which only five markers have values above 0.70 and these markers can be considered as highly useful for differentiation of pearl millet germplasm lines. A total of seven major clusters have been identified using UPGMA cluster tree analysis. The present study reveals that SSRs are effective markers for the assessment of genetic diversity in germplasm lines of pearl millet.
