dc.description.abstract Carthamus tinctorius (2n = 2x = 24) (family Asteraceae), commonly known as safflower, is widely cultivated in agricultural production systems of Asia, Europe, Australia and the Americas as a source of high-quality vegetable and industrial oil. India ranks first in the production of safflower oil. Fourteen cultivars, widely cultivated in various agro-climatic regions of India, have been fingerprinted by RAPD, ISSR, and AFLP markers utilizing 36, 21 primers, and 4 primer combinations, respectively. On an individual assay basis, AFLP has proven to be the best marker system as compared with the other two markers applied as assessed by high discriminating power (0.98), assay efficiency index (33.2), marker index (18.2), resolving power (40.62), and genotype index (0.856). Thirty-six RAPD and 21 SSR primers could differentiate a maximum of eight and four cultivars, respectively, whereas, two AFLP primer combinations could fingerprint all the 14 cultivars. To understand genetic relationships among these cultivars, Jaccard's similarity coefficient and UPGMA clustering algorithm were applied to the three marker data sets. Mean genetic similarities ranged from 0.689 (AFLP) to 0.952 (ISSR). Correlation coefficient comparisons between similarity matrices and co-phenetic matrices obtained with the three markers revealed that AFLP displayed no congruence vis-a-vis RAPD and ISSR data. However, strong correlation was observed between RAPD and ISSR marker systems. This paper reports the start of molecular biology programme targeting nuclear genome of safflower, a major world oilseed crop about whose genetics very little is known. en
