Characterization and expression of the ABC family (G group) in ‘Dangshansuli’ pear (Pyrus bretschneideri Rehd.) and its russet mutant

Genet Mol Biol
PMCID: 5901498
PMID: 29658971
DOI: 10.1590/1678-4685-GMB-2017-0109

[…] The chromosome number is indicated on the chromosome. The synteny relationship between each pair of ABCG genes was detected using the MicroSyn software and positioned on the 17 pear chromosomes. The PbABCG gene names were assigned according to their position on pear chromosomes 1-17. The chromosome map showing the physical location […]


Retention and Molecular Evolution of Lipoxygenase Genes in Modern Rosid Plants

Front Genet
PMCID: 5043136
PMID: 27746812
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2016.00176

[…] Microsynteny analysis within four species was detected by MicroSyn software (Cai et al., ). At the beginning of the generated MSY file step, three property files are needed: the gene list file, the CDS file and the gene identifier file. The microsynteny grap […]


Evolutionary and functional analysis of mulberry type III polyketide synthases

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4973071
PMID: 27487946
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-016-2843-7

[…] All scaffolds that contained putative mulberry type III PKS genes were analyzed. The microsyntenic regions surrounding genes were detected using MicroSyn software []. The mean Ks value was calculated for all pairs of protein-coding genes among all genomic fragments using the method described by Nei and Gojobori []. The timing of gene duplicati […]


Molecular evolution and expression divergence of the Populus euphratica Hsf genes provide insight into the stress acclimation of desert poplar

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4948027
PMID: 27425424
DOI: 10.1038/srep30050

[…] //chibba.agtec.uga.edu/duplication/). For duplication of Hsf genes in P. euphratica and S. suchowensis, the duplicated events were identified based on the duplicated block from synteny analysis using MicroSyn. A duplicated block was defined as a region where three or more conserved homologs were located within 15 genes up- and down-stream between scaffolds. […]


Characterization and Comparison of the CPK Gene Family in the Apple (Malus × domestica) and Other Rosaceae Species and Its Response to Alternaria alternata Infection

PLoS One
PMCID: 4871508
PMID: 27186637
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0155590

[…] r locations on the chromosomes in the GFF file. Genes with a maximum of 5 genes distance were considered to be tandem duplicates. The syntenies between each pair of members were detected by using the MicroSyn software. The parameters were set as follows: window size of 100 genes, tandem gap value of 2, expected threshold value cut off of 1e-10, and 8 homologous pairs to define a syntenic segment. […]


VGSC: A Web Based Vector Graph Toolkit of Genome Synteny and Collinearity

Biomed Res Int
PMCID: 4783527
PMID: 27006949
DOI: 10.1155/2016/7823429

[…] s it can reveal ancient WGD events [] and complex chromosomal duplication/rearrangement relationships []. One of the early software packages providing analysis of collinearity within gene families is MicroSyn []. MCScan [], Multiple Collinearity Scan, is another very popular algorithm in synteny and collinearity detection. It scans multiple genomes or subgenomes, identifies putative homologous chr […]
