Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) genome and transcriptome

PMCID: 5886536
PMID: 29621340
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0195461

[…] alignments were then used to identify the locations of the centromere on each chromosome based on the genetic map produced by []., to identify duplicated regions (homeologous) of the chinook genome, symap [] was used to align a masked version of the genome (see section 2.5) to itself and identify duplicated blocks using the following parameters: merge_blocks = 1, nucmer_only = 1, and mindots = […]


Whole genome assembly of the coral reef Pearlscale Pygmy Angelfish (Centropyge vrolikii)

PMCID: 5784092
PMID: 29367590
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-19430-x

[…] to the mitos web server to validate its annotations ( the mitos annotation confirmed 2 rrnas, 13 coding genes and 22 trnas (table )., a synteny analysis using symap vers. 4.2, revealed 372 total shared syntenic blocks with 100 inverted, representing 92% of the centropyge vrolikii and 90% of the nile tilapia (oreochromis niloticus) contig lengths […]


PhyloChromoMap, a Tool for Mapping Phylogenomic History along Chromosomes, Reveals the Dynamic Nature of Karyotype Evolution in Plasmodium falciparum

PMCID: 5800058
PMID: 29365145
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evy017

[…] (; ). in chromosome 10 this region is less obvious, encompassing only around 1 kb with a 94% gc content (, online)., we perform a synteny analysis of subtelomeric and internal young portions using symap (; , online). we explore different values for the minimum number of anchors to define a synteny block (i.e., from 3 to 7) and do not see any major differences (, online). we choose parameters […]


Comparison of three assembly strategies for a heterozygous seedless grapevine genome assembly

PMCID: 5773036
PMID: 29343235
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4434-2

[…] 12x.v2) were grouped into a chromosome 21. synteny blocks between the genome assemblies of v. vinifera ‘sultanina’ (ap, plat_d, merge, and plat*_gc) and v. vinifera (pn40024 12x.v2) were computed by symap []. symap provides the number of anchors have alignment lengths >10 kb with the reference genome. all four assemblies were separately mapped with v. vinifera using the promer option […]


The genomes of Crithidia bombi and C. expoeki, common parasites of bumblebees

PMCID: 5755769
PMID: 29304093
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0189738

[…] is encoded by a single exon, and a very similar distribution of exons per gene altogether. furthermore, there is a high degree of synteny between the two species as shown in . quantitatively, the symap synteny analysis revealed 5,098 anchors in 99 syntenic blocks with conserved gene order among c. bombi and c. expoeki []. of these conserved blocks, 18 are smaller than 100 kbp, 80 blocks […]


Resequencing of the Leishmania infantum (strain JPCM5) genome and de novo assembly into 36 contigs

PMCID: 5741766
PMID: 29273719
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-18374-y
call_split See protocol

[…] e new genes uncovered in the new assembled l. infantum genome. the complete annotation of the new genome (gff3 file) is provided in the supplementary file  in excel format., synteny was evaluated via symap and progressive mauve algorithms using current l. infantum (v.9, and l. major genomes as reference. synteny graphs were prepared by genoplotr, and provided as supplementary figures  […]
