Characterizing better understanding the genome organization and differentiating identity of genotypes based on their morphology and genome characteristics are vital determinants in their commercialization, management of germplasm repositories, and genetic conservation. Morphoagronomic characterization of plants is not always feasible or sometimes labor intensive. Employing chloroplast, mitochondrial, and nuclear genome diversity using molecular biology tools will enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of revealing identity differences between genotypes. Using organelle and nuclear genome diversity can also answer a broad range of genetic, evolutionary relationships, and ecological questions.
