Abstract: Spectacular development of molecular science in the field of genetics provide new era of genomics. Genetic improvement of the plant has been done through development of new generation of genetic markers. At the same time accomplishment of DNA sequence provide information which use in the identification of new species and unknown species. There are various molecular markers are used which have different principles, methodologies and application. So for choosing one of them they require careful consideration. The emergent pattern makes its unique feature for the analysis of individualistic and presently reekon to be the absolute tool for biological specification. Continuous development of novel molecular markers introduced the importance in the genomic variability and genetic diversity between the intra-specific and inter-specific species of the plant. In this review paper, we discussed different types of molecular markers and their application in plants, comparing other types of molecular markers.
