Various programs for genetic improvement in oil yield of the biofuel plant Jatropha curcas L. are currently in progress worldwide. In order to develop strategies for genetic improvement, it is important to estimate the degree of diversity at the genetic level among various genotypes of J. curcas. High-throughput sequencing of complexity-reduced nuclear genomic DNA of J. curcas coupled with computational analysis discovered 2,482 informative single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). Genotyping of selective SNPs among 148 global collections of J. curcas lines and further diversity analysis through NTSYS-pc, DARwin and Structure 2.0 software revealed that a narrow level of genetic diversity existed among the indigenous genotypes as compared to the exotic genotypes of J. curcas. The level of marker informativeness along with distance-based and Bayesian clustering revealed grouping of the accession from Togo (Africa) with various Indian accessions at K = 4 and K = 5 values (where K represents the number of populations). The diverse accessions identified in the study will be of further use in genetic improvement of J. curcas through quantitative trait loci and association mapping.
