ABSTRACT: Genetic diversity among 24 genotypes of sorghum was studied by using 20 random primers. The total number of amplified PCR bands was 591 of which 495 (83.75%) were polymorphic displaying PIC values ranging from 0.27 to 0.69 with an average of 0.52. Similarity coefficients among the genotypes were ranged from 0.33 to 0.89. The similarity coefficient was used to construct a UPGMA based dendrogram using average linkage between groups. The analysis illustrates considerable potential of RAPD markers for estimating genetic diversity among 24 genotypes of sorghum.
