Two molecular marker approaches [amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) and simple sequence repeat (SSR)] were employed to study genomic relationship among 96 rice cultivars. These included most of the best reputed Italian accessions. AFLP produced 461 fragments, 248 (53%) of which were polymorphic, SSR produced four to 11 alleles in the 12 genomic loci investigated. Genomic similarity was estimated independently for the two molecular marker techniques. Both AFLP and SSR dendrograms agree in splitting the cultivars into two main clusters: a small one, comprising four exotic accessions, and a larger one which could be split into four sub-groups. These were also analysed on the basis of historical and pedigree information. This is the first report on the application of DNA polymorphism analysis to reveal genomic relationship among cultivated Italian rice germplasm. Results will be useful for breeding programmes.
