Detecting and Characterizing the Highly Divergent Plastid Genome of the Nonphotosynthetic Parasitic Plant Hydnora visseri (Hydnoraceae)

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 4779604
PMID: 26739167
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evv256

[…] icana. As sequence divergence is very high in Hydnora compared with these two plants, colinearity was visualized based on annotation, using Multi-Genome Synteny viewer (, last accessed January 11, 2016; ). Both the gene order and the gene orientation are nearly identical compared with Piper and Conopholis (). The only exception being the gene block of y […]


Genomic Characterization of the LEED..PEEDs, a Gene Family Unique to the Medicago Lineage

PMCID: 4199706
PMID: 25155275
DOI: 10.1534/g3.114.011874

[…] mes were identified and visualized using MUMmer 3 software () with default parameters. Gene homology patterns within these regions were analyzed using GEvo (default parameters) () and visualized with mGSV software (), filtering out small syntenic regions (<500 bp) and joining consecutive syntenic regions within a single gene.LPs 2–13 from M. truncatula ssp. tricycla R108 were located on a single s […]


Distribution of segmental duplications in the context of higher order chromatin organisation of human chromosome 7

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4092221
PMID: 24973960
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-15-537

[…] an Epigenome Browser [] in the mm9 and hg19 assembly, respectively. Orthologous genes located at the murine domain borders were plotted at the corresponding location in the human genome employing the Multi-Genome Synteny Viewer (mGSV) []. […]
