The present study reports for the first time the assessment of genetic diversity among ten accessions of Zingiber montanum (Koenig) Link ex A. Dietr., collected from different parts of Manipur using random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers and screening of their antioxidant activity by 1, 1- Diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging activity. The ten accessions exhibited genetic variability with 91.83% polymorphism among them and similarity coefficients ranged from 0.35 to 0.68 with an average of 0.44. UPGMA clustering based on Jaccard’s similarity coefficient divided the accessions into three distinct clusters with respect to their location of collection. The antioxidant activity of the accessions also showed variations with value ranging from 59.03% to 74.30% inhibition.
