The utility of multilocus RFLPs and three PCR-based techniques, Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD), Inter-Simple Sequence Repeat-PCR (ISSR-PCR) and simple sequence repeats (SSRs) for genetic characterization was examined using 13 diverse silkworm strains. All four approaches successfully discriminated the 13 silkworm varieties but differed in the amount of polymorphism detected. The usefulness of each system was examined in terms of number of loci revealed (effective multiplex ratio, EMR) and the amount of polymorphism detected (diversity index, DI). For example, the six multilocus RFLP probes produced 180 products of which 97% were polymorphic; 15 SSR loci gave rise to an average of 8 alleles each, of which 86% were polymorphic. The ISSR-PCR produced 39 fragments of which 76.98% were polymorphic. The highest diversity index was observed for ISSR-PCR (0.957) and the lowest for RAPDs (0.744). The RAPD, ISSR-PCR and RFLP assays clearly separated the diapausing and non-diapausing silkworm varieties. These results are discussed in terms of choice of appropriate marker technology for different aspects of silkworm genome analysis.
