Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD) primers are considered the most effective tools for assessing insect genetic diversity between individuals or within and between related species or populations (Yoon and Aquadro, 1994; Salvato et al.
ISSR markers produced a total of 151 bands, of which 106 bands were polymorphic and the average polymorphic loci per primer was evaluated 8.
On the other hand, for measuring the ISSR informativeness to differentiate the 55 safflower genotypes, the polymorphic information content (PIC) was calculated using the formula of Anderson et al.

This is where risk assessment comes into play: Your screening has to ensure that the polymorphic form you use in 'development is sufficiently stable--but depending on your product, it might not be critical and you will have to decide what amount of resources you will invest in it at the given moment.
Among the several DNA based techniques, Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD) is simple, less technology intensive, cheap and does not require pre-sequencing for designing primers (Williams et al.
