In this study, genetic diversity among 66 banana (Musa cavendishii) genotypes (20 Azman, 15 Grand Nine and 31 Dwarf Cvandish) was tried to be identified with the aid of 7 DAMD markers (URP13R, HVB5, URP2R, URP1F, 62H2, 336H, 4CR). A total of 70 bands were obtained and 63 of them were polymorphic and polymorphism ratio was 90%. Genetic similarities varied between 0,72 0,97. Genetic similarity dendrogram had 2 main groups. Only Azman 18 was placed in the first group and all the other genotypes were placed in the second group. Present findings revealed significant genetic diversity in banana genotypes and such a diversity could reliably be used in further breeding studies.
