DNA fingerprinting/Molecular characterization of released varieties was done for following ornamental crops using ISSR/SSR markers.

  1. Rose: G.S. Randhawa, Kiran and Nishkant
  2. Crossandra : Arka kanaka, Arka ambara; 2 Hybrids -2005-1 and 2005-2.
  3. Carnation : Arka Flame
  4. Tuberose:    Shringar, Suvasini, Prajwal, Vybhav, Niranthara  
  5. Molecular characterization of 30 genotypes of Gladiolus.
