Radiation-induced mutants of groundnut cv. Spanish Improved showing distinct morphological differences and the parent were screened for RAPD variability. The analysis revealed characteristic band differences among the 12 mutants and the parent. Polymorphic RAPD bands were dominant in the F1 and segregated in a Mendelian fashion in the F2. The RAPD technique disclosed greater genomic variability than RFLP analysis.
