To investigate the phylogenetic relationship of nine Ipomoea species, seed proteins were analysed by sodium dodecyl sulphate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE). Based on the analysis, total 50 bands were identified. The number of bands varies from 8 bands in Ipomoea obscura to 4 in Ipomoea mauritiana. Phylogenetic tree was constructed based on the presence or absence of protein bands using Freetree and Treeview software programme.
