Abstract

Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) technique was used to the analysis of the haplotypes of Varroa destrcuctor in southern half of Iran. Eight Varroa populations were collected and five RAPD primers were used to determine their genotype. All samples showed the K pattern genotype. Furthermore 30 loci were amplified; from which 29 were polymorphic (96.67%) and 1 was monomorphic (3.33%). This is the first molecular genetic study of V. destructor in Iran. Detailed investigations at DNA sequence level are needed to characterize genetic structure of V. destructor populations in Iran.
