The genetic relationships among five genera, seven species of Theaceae were examined througha random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis and internal transcribed spacer (ITS). InRAPD analysis, five of 15 arbitrary primers showed polymorphic bands, which were able toclassify different genera and species of Theaceae. The genetic variations of Theaceae were from0.031 to 0.484. In ITS analysis, the ITS sequences were analyzed using BLAST and showed highidentities with sequences of Theaceae, seven species published in NCBI GenBank database, whichranged from 98 to 100%. Sequence alignment of seven species showed 34.9% identities for ITS 1region and 43.7% for ITS 2 region. Pairwise sequence divergences among seven species rangedfrom 0 to 0.330%. In phylogenetic tree, they were divided into three groups. In conclusion, themolecular data generated in the present investigation will help to understand the geneticrelationships of Theaceae and also might be useful for further studies in intra-species, inter-species,and molecular evolution researches.
