Abstract

Mulberry has an important quality for both horticultural production and sericulture in Turkey. Anatolia has an extensive potential for mulberry. On the other hand, these mullberry germplasm has not been adequately determined and relatedness among them has not been properly investigated. A total of 47 mullberry genotypes; 20, 14, 5, 4 and 4 from Erzincan, Elazig, Diyarbakir, Malatya and Mardin provinces, respectively, were comparatively investigated in order to determine their relationships by 55 RAPD markers obtained from 6 primers (Operon OPA12, OPA13, OPAF04, OPF07, OPG02 and OPG03) and their relatedness were determined.
