DNA fingerprinting analysis of genetic relatedness between carnation genotypes using human derived minisatellite probes, correctly reflected relationships within and between categories of carnation plants with inferred relatedness. Similar DNA fingerprint patterns were observed between genotypes within either ‘standard’ or ‘spray’ categories. A high level of similarity was also detected between those categories. Moderate similarities were found within the ‘dwarf’ category, and between ‘dwarf’ and either ‘standard’ or ‘spray’ categories. Large differences were observed between a wild species and cultivated categories. Abbreviations: b.1.-breeding line, BS-band-sharing
