The possibility of early detection of date palm seedling Al-Barhi cultivars by using RAPD technique and comparing it with the mother


DNA of seven date palm seedling resulting from the planting of the seeds of Al-Barhi cultivars has been analyzed and compared with the original mother ( Al-Barhi) . Four primers ( OPA-09,OPB-09,OPC-9,OPC08)have been used for DNA estimation by using RAPD technique.The results showed the presence of multiple configurable ( polymorphic) between studied seedling ,i.e. there is a difference at genotype level .The study suggested that the differences as aresult of seedling arising from seed¬
