Random amplified polymorphic DNAs (RAPDs) and amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs) were used to estimate the genetic diversity between and within 21 populations of Pinus brutia collected from five different regions of Syria. After screening 400 Operon Primers, only nine were able to detect polymorphism between the tree samples. The AFLP analysis also confirmed the low genetic variability.
