In this study, genetic diversity among 71 bean genotypes (41 pinto beans and 30 fresh bean genotypes) and 4 commercial cultivars (Aleyna, Gina, Perolar, and Serra) commonly grown at Erzincan province in Turkey were investigated. The iPBS (inter-primer binding site) markers were used to investigate the genetic diversity of the genotypes. Polymorphism ratio was identified as 100% in all primers. Twenty-seven primers were studied and number of alleles in primers varied between 13?69 (with an average value of 37.14). According to cluster analysis based on iPBS data, genotypes were divided into 2 groups. Polymorphic information content (PIC) values varied between 0.19 (iPBS 2077) and 0.42 (iPBS 2381, iPBS 2385, and iPBS 2389) with an average PIC value of 0.33. According to genetic structure analysis, genotypes were divided into 2 subpopulations. Majority of the genotypes of the regions from where beans were collected were placed in the same groups.
