Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD) technique is a powerful tool for genetic studies. It can be also applied for determination of bacterial species. The goal of this work was to optimize conditions for RAPD reaction, and to obtain RAPD patterns specific for some plant-associated bacteria. RAPD could be a good choice for screening and preliminary bacterial determination. Application of RAPD can determine that some of bacterial species are not reason of infection, and make additional tests for them unnecessary. This can provide time, labor, and as well as money saving, which is important particularly if expensive tests are applied. Optimization of reaction conditions in this work made possible good repeatability of RAPD electrophoretic patterns for particular bacterial species.
