Currently, study of the inter and the intra-population genetic disparity was done by use of the 200 Olea europaea L. which is found growing naturally in the nation of Iran, and this study was carried out by AFLP and IRAP markers. The fingerprints that were similar to the AFLP and the IRAP markers were evidence of high concentrations of heterozygosity and this shows that O. europaea L. is primarily the out crossing species. The average percentage of polymorphism is as shown below: 87.15 and 87.38% of the information used in regard to the AFLP and the IRAP, respectively. The gene disparity numerals on the population researched were 1.087 for HT and 0.871 for HS in regard to AFLP. For the IRAP it was 1.084 for HT and 0.860 for HS. The general values for genetic variations that are found in the O. europaea L. germplasm in the nation of Iran were then assessed through putting together the AFLP and the IRAP information so as to cover a larger genome. Arguing from the AFLP and the IRAP studies, it can be concluded that there are more levels of genetic variation at inter and the intra-population level for the O. europaea.
