A study was conducted to evaluate the utility of ISSR markers as a tool for identification of genetic diversity among sorghum genotypes. Twenty five ISSR primers were used to study the genetic diversity among 16 genotypes of Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench. A total of 288 scorable ISSR markers were generated from 16 genotypes, of which 262 were polymorphic. The polymorphic data generated from these markers were used to estimate the similarity index value and a dendrogram was constructed. The dendrogram classified the 16 genotypes into 13 distinct clusters. Based on the results of these studies, ISSR markers appear to be particularly useful for the estimation of genetic similarity among diverse genotypes of sorghum
