This study aimed to identify Trichoderma from sugarcane bagasse based on iinternal transcribed spacer (ITS) rDNA. The sample used was pure isolate of Trichoderma from sugarcane bagasse. DNA samples were isolated using the modified CTAB method. DNA was amplified using the primers ITS1 and ITS4. Interestingly, the results showed that Trichoderma genomic DNA has a concentration of 92.56 mg with a purity of 1.91. The amplicon of Trichoderma DNA is about 600 bp, whereas phylogenetic analysis shows that the sample of Trichoderma from sugarcane bagasse is one group with Trichoderma harzianum, Trichoderma piluliferum, Trichoderma sp. SQR339, Hypocrea nigricans, and Trichoderma sp. NFML CH12 BB. 15, Trichoderma aureoviride, Hypocrea lixii, and Trichoderma BAB-4585.
