In this study, the genetic diversity of 52 soybean landraces were analyzed using 60 SSR (Simple sequence repeat) markers. The results showed that a total of 545 alleles were detected by 60 pairs of SSR primers, with a range of 2-18 alleles and an average of 9.08 alleles per SSR locus. The gene diversity of 60 SSR markers was 0.4529-0.9210, with an average of 0.7579; the polymorphism information content was 0.3562-0.9157, with an average of 0.7288. The results showed that the genetic diversity of black and green soybeans was relatively high. The results of cluster analysis showed that 52 soybean landraces could be divided into 5 groups. AMOVA analysis showed that 11.27% of the genetic variation existed among groups. The Fst between yellow and black seed coat soybean, and the Fst between yellow and light green seed coat soybean were 0.0788 and 0.0867, respectively, indicating moderate genetic differentiation. This study can provide reference information for further utilization of soybean landraces and genetic improvement of black and green soybean varieties.
