DNA-based marker fingerprinting techniques are developed with the aim of their effective use in the identification or comparative studies of plant genomes. In the genus Vaccinium, DNA markers help resolve taxonomic relationships among the species included in it. In this study, the allergen coding genes and micro RNAs were used as DNA markers and applied for the characterization of the fingerprints of Vaccinium corymbosum L. and Vaccinium myrtilus L. Both techniques were found to be effective in distinguishing the analysed Vaccinium accessions and in the generating of polymorphism and in the case of Bet v 1 Based Amplicon Polymorphism and Profilin Based Amplicon Polymorphism, separated fingerprints were obtained for Vaccinium myrtilus L.
