Abstract:

The molecular characterization and genetic diversity of 10 wheat genotypes was investigated using 34 polymorphic simple sequence repeats screened primers. About thirty-one loci were found. Lr-19 gene was present in all 10 wheat genotypes that cause resistance against wheat rust. Iqbal-2000 and Ufaq showed the highest genetic diversity between each other giving a genetic similarity of 96.34% and a minimum genetic diversity was observed between Lasani-08 and Bhakar which showed the dissimilarity of about 66.64%. The current study found that all of the genotypes could distinguish and characterize by SSR makers, new screened primers could be used for study and can also be used in different saturated regions for further research. Lr-19 is a wheat rust resistant gene and present in all ten genotypes. This gene causes resistance against rust diseases.
