Molecular characterization of genotypes is an important part for the selection of appropriate parents. Twenty four (nineteen aromatic and five non-aromatic) rice genotypes were evaluated for 40 genetic loci at molecular level to identify the desirable genotypes for future breeding program. A total of 159 alleles were found in the present study of which RM 6959 showed the highest number of alleles (8) and RM 5499 showed the lowest number of alleles (2), with an average of 3.98 alleles across the 40 loci. The frequency of the most common allele at each locus ranged from 33% (RM 19, RM 215, RM 452 and RM 1155) to 92% (RM 10). The range of polymorphic information content (PIC) values was from 0.1504 to 0.7584 with an average of 0.532. The highest PIC value (0.7548) was obtained for RM 242 followed by RM 215 and RM 6959 (0.7394). PIC value revealed that RM 242 was the best marker for revealing the genetic constitutions of 24 tested rice genotypes.
