RAPD's were proved to be useful as genetic markers in the case of self-pollinating species with a relatively low level of intraspecific polymorphism, such as hexaploidy wheat.
This would allow for analysis at a finer scale, the inclusion of more independent variables and the exploration of how biological properties such a hexaploidy and clonal growth influence genetic variation.
Mantel tests of the average GSCs (Table 3) among the ploidy levels further demonstrated that the genetic distances among the tetraploidy, pentaploidy, and hexaploidy are significant (P < 0.
