Unformatted text preview: The RAPD-marker–generated genetic variation among the control and gamma- ray–treated lines will help distinguish the plants for early selection. The RAPD method has successfully been used to study genetic variability between in vitro Rhododendron varieties and mutants, which were exposed to gamma irradiation doses of 5 and 10 Gy (Atak et al., 2011). Barakat et al. (2010) suggested that by using RAPD markers, the newly gamma-irradiated chrysanthemum lines can be easily differentiated from the in vitro Chrysanthemum morifolium cultivar ‘Delistar White.’ The RAPD technique has successfully differentiated Gypsophila paniculata variants obtained through in vitro mutagenesis from their parent (Barakat and El-Sammak, 2011). Detection of in-vitro- mutagenesis–induced DNA polymorphisms with RAPD has also been reported in Saccharum officinarum (Ahmed Khan et al., 2009; Bibi et al., 2010). These results indicated that the RAPD technique can be a useful tool to detect variation induced through mutation under in vit...
