Abstract: Bougainvillea commonly known as paper flower and it is a popular plant that grows in Saudi Arabia. It contains a number of phytochemicals and small amounts of sugars. Many researchers showed it has traditional uses such as an antibacterial, anticancer, antidiabetic, antifungal and antioxidant. In our study, fresh young leaves of Bougainvillea were collected from King Abdul Aziz University and the total genomic DNA was extracted, purified using kit, then it was run and visualizedon1% of agarose gel electrophoresis. Our data showed that molecular weight more than 1 kbp was examined. This study provided further support for using DNA extraction as a molecular characterization for species belonging to Bougainvillea in Jeddah province.
