[…] were used to construct a phylogenetic tree by mrbayes []. the divergence time was estimated using the software multidivtime []. colinearity between d. longan and p. trichocarpa was computed by symap v3.4 []. subsequently, tf families were identified using the ipr2genomes tool in greenphyldb v. 2.0 [] based on interpro domains, and gene family expansion and contraction within […]

[…] 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 = […]

[…] 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 […]

[…] (; ). 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 […]

[…] 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 […]

[…] 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 […]
