Genetic diversity and relationships among 6 Amaranthus species from 8 phytogeographic regions of the Indo-Gangetic plains were analyzed using a random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) marker. RAPD primers yielded a total of 262 amplicons, ranging from approximately 250 to approximately 3000 bp in size with an average of 13.1 amplicons per primer, of which 254 amplicons (96.94%) were polymorphic.
