Rice is the predominant staple feeding more than half of the world population. Genetic diversity analysis is highly essential for employing suitable diverse genotypes as parents in target oriented hybridisation programmes. The diversity analysis was conducted in 35 recombinant Kalanamak rice genotypes using 30 microsatellite markers. A total of 38 alleles were detected among the 35 rice genotypes of rice exhibiting 89.47% polymorphism. The overall size of amplified products ranged from 90 to 400 bp and the number of alleles per locus varied from 1-3. The genotypes were clustered into six clusters. SSR primers namely, RM 159 and RM 264 generated higher levels of polymorphism and can be used for rice profiling in future.
