DNA markers (AFLP,RAPD, RFLP, SSR) were recently used to assess the genetic diversity among wild and cultivated C. arabica accessions, and to detect introgressions from C. canephora and C. liberica into C. arabica genome. The results allowed for the definition of breeding strategies using the whole genetic diversity that are conserved in field genebanks and for the control of alien gene transfer to improve arabica cultivars.
