Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPDs) from plants contains numerous fragments of mitochondrial origin. In the present study, the association between RAPD bands and previously recognized mitochondrial polymorphism in a Larix population was used to identify fragments of mitochondrial origin and to develop PCR-based mitochondrial DNA markers useful to study phylogeny in larches, Larix sp. (Pinaceae).
