Single molecule sequencing and Hi C based proximity guided assembly of amaranth (Amaranthus hypochondriacus) chromosomes provide insights into genome evolution

BMC Biol
PMCID: 5577786
PMID: 28854926
DOI: 10.1186/s12915-017-0412-4

[…] chromosomes and between amaranth and beet (Ref-Beet1.1; []) chromosomes were identified and investigated using the recommended parameters (DAGChainer = relative gene order and Merge Syntenic Blocks = Quota Align) of the CoGe [] SynMap [] tool. In short, SynMap uses LAST [] to identify homologous genes between the designated chromosomes and DAGChainer [] to identify collinear blocks of homologous g […]


A systems approach to a spatio temporal understanding of the drought stress response in maize

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5529502
PMID: 28747711
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-06929-y
call_split See protocol

[…] using the SynMap utility of the CoGe website (https://genomevolution.org/coge/). The syntenic blocks containing multiple genes were detected using APGv3 CDS data with default settings except for the Quota Align Merge algorithm, and the final syntenic gene-set output with GEvo links was downloaded for further analysis. […]


The genome wide identification and transcriptional levels of DNA methyltransferases and demethylases in globe artichoke

PLoS One
PMCID: 5529103
PMID: 28746368
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0181669

[…] e chains of syntenic genes, the DAGchainer module (with the ‘relative gene order’ option activated and the ‘maximum distance between two matches’ parameter set to 20) was used in conjunction with the Quota-Align algorithm (with the maximum distance between two blocks set to 20 genes), both of which are implemented within the CoGe SynMap function. The chromosomal locations of ohnologous methylase/d […]


Lineage Specific Evolutionary Histories and Regulation of Major Starch Metabolism Genes during Banana Ripening

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5133247
PMID: 27994606
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2016.01778
call_split See protocol

[…] WGD gene pairs were identified as deriving from α or β Musa WGD using available α and β blocks (). Additional paralogous relationships were detected using SynMap with default parameters and a 3 to 3 quota-align ratio for banana (). Gene scale duplications corresponding to two consecutive duplicated genes (tandem duplications) and duplicated genes separated by twenty or fewer gene loci (proximal d […]


Genome Wide Identification of BAHD Acyltransferases and In vivo Characterization of HQT like Enzymes Involved in Caffeoylquinic Acid Synthesis in Globe Artichoke

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5033976
PMID: 27721818
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2016.01424

[…] nd within the complete genome sequence, DAGchainer software (with the ‘Relative gene order’ option activated and the ‘Maximum distance between two matches’ parameter set to 20) was used together with Quota-Align algorithm (with maximum distance between two blocks set to 20 genes), both implemented to the SynMap function within CoGe. The chromosomal locations of the ohnolog BAHD genes were visualiz […]


Large Scale Evolutionary Analysis of Genes and Supergene Clusters from Terpenoid Modular Pathways Provides Insights into Metabolic Diversification in Flowering Plants

PLoS One
PMCID: 4457800
PMID: 26046541
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0128808

[…] ) [,]. Within all genome assemblies, we determined genes sharing the same genomic context to counterparts in the A. thaliana Col-0 genome annotation (defined as syntelogs) using the DAGchainer [] and Quota-Align [] algorithms implemented to the “SynMap” function within CoGe. To mask noise generated by successive duplication(s) of ohnolog blocks including segmental duplications, we applied Quota-Al […]
