Inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) analysis was for the first time used to study the genetic diversity and phylogenetic relationships in 54 wild accessions and cultivars of the genus Lycopersicon. Analysis involved 14 ISSR primers homologous to microsatellite repeats and containing additional selective anchor nucleotides. In total, 318 ISSR fragments were amplified for the wild and cultivated tomato genomes. The interspecific polymorphism revealed with the ISSR primers was 95.6%. Species-specific ISSR fragments were detected for each tomato species. The highest number (more than 20) of species-specific fragments were obtained for L. esculentum sensu lato, although the intraspecific variation of ISSR patterns was low. UPGMA cluster analysis was used to construct a dendrogram and to estimate the genetic distances between the species of the genus Lycopersicon; between populations ofL. peruvianum, L. pimpinellifolium, and L. esculentum; and between tomato cultivars. The ISSR-based phylogeny was generally consistent with Lycopersicon taxonomy based on morphological and molecular evidence, suggesting the applicability of ISSR analysis for genotyping and phylogenetic studies in tomato.
