( Hodges et al., 1968 ). Controlled environments (CEs) provide advantages to predict plant responses to their environment and increase production efficiency, optimize plant yield, and improve product quality. They play a key role in the commercial

diversity of mango germplasm in Egypt using 13 specific markers (SSR and EST-SSR) was reported. A high diversity of mango cultivars was confirmed as a pattern of morphology and genotypes. Molecular markers (SSR and EST-SSR) are powerful tools for optimizing
