This study aimed to survey and identifies some species of reptiles from various regions in the Sudan using molecular information. Genomic DNA was extracted from the tail tips and amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using primers for cytochrome-b mitochondrial gene. PCR products were sequenced and the resulting cytochrome-b gene sequences were aligned with homologous sequences obtained from the GenBank database. Phylogenetic trees were constructed to set up relationships of the gecko and lizard species. The phylogenetic relationships were compared to relevant species recorded from different world locations.
