Botanical descriptors, total seed proteins, isozymes and RAPD markers were applied to identify landraces from indigenous lentil germplasm exclusively collected from the province of Baluchistan, Pakistan. The Germplasm revealed the prevalence of landraces, especially on the basis of isozymes
and RAPD markers. Dversity explored through various techniques revealed validity irrespective of the sample size from a particular district, RAPD being the best choice for investigating both inter and intraaccession variation that is needed to extend to more germplasm study along with botanical descriptors.
