To understand if distinct landraces exist as Solanum melongena independent populations and what is the nature of genetic relationships among them, 96 landraces of brinjal SSR markers collected from all over India between 1985 and 2012 and conserved in the Indian National Genebank were Genetic diversity analysed for molecular genetic variation using simple sequence repeats (SSR) loci. Seven polymorphic SSR loci Landrace exhibited fragment length polymorphism with 16 distinct alleles resulting in modest polymorphic information content (0.36) and gene diversity (0.432). Genetic
