The variety CUMS 17 (Suprava) has recently been developed in sesame by Genetics and Plant Breeding department, University of Calcutta. The variety is recommended by central varietal release committee in 2018. The variety CUMS 17 along with two check varieties namely GT 10 and Savitri were analysed by 21 SSR primers. Fourteen polymorphic SSR primers were finally used for DNA fingerprinting. The SSR primers produced a total of 46 alleles with an average number of 3.28 alleles with amplicon size ranging from 100 to 600 bp. Alleles were assigned with numeric numbers in the order of increasing size of amplicon that produced an allelic barcode that denotes the unique identification of the newly developed variety of sesame.

Key words: DNA Fingerprinting, Microsatellite markers, Variety identification, Sesame.
