[…] ary Figure ). Furthermore, a genome synteny analysis among these strains was performed with different criteria of identifying probable recombination blocks (such as e-value, base pair length etc.) in GSV (). Probable recombination regions were marked, and individual gene sequences from these regions were extracted and aligned with ClustalW in MEGA6 () for recombination study with RDP (). Three dif […]

Sequence collinearity blocks were visualized using the Web-based Genome Synteny Viewer [] and Circos [].All marker sequences from linkage groups NLL-10 and NLL-17 [, , ] were repeat-masked by RepeatMasker and Censor []. Masked sequences were then aligned to the L. […]
