Syntenic regions are calculated where possible from pairwise (two-species) whole genome alignments.

This view presents synteny between two species only. The chromosome in the middle represents the species of interest, and the smaller chromosomes show syntenic regions in a second species. Blocks are coloured to indicate the chromosome number on the second species. These blocks are connected by lines. A black line indicates regions with opposite orientation. Brown lines connect syntenic blocks with the same orientation. The small red box marks the gene of interest and its homologue.

Under this chromosome diagram is the gene list representing one region, along with homologues.
