Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) genome and transcriptome

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

[…] ed 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 = 20 […]


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

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

[…] Using SyMAP vers. 4.2 we analyzed the collinearity of gene order at the whole chromosome scale (i.e. macrosynteny as per Hane et al.) between the Pearlscale Pygmy Angelfish C_vrolikii_CAS243847_v1.0 and the […]


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

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 5800058
PMID: 29365145
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evy017

[…] 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

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

[…] y blocks (> 10 kb) in comparison with the inbred V. vinifera (PN40024 12X.v2) were greater for the three de novo assemblies and PLAT_d, MERGE, and PLAT*_GC had ≥ 2300 more synteny blocks than the AP. SyMAP [] visualization of the synteny blocks show that the MERGE synteny blocks map similarly as the AP blocks do with the inbred V. vinifera reference genome, although there are differences particula […]


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

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

[…] d reciprocal best hit BLAST searches. In our comparative study, we could not include Crithidia mellificae/Lotmaria passim ([,], as the protein database is not available.Synteny analysis was done with SyMap, version 4.2 []. The genome assembly of each species was loaded into SyMap using a minimum contig length threshold of 2000 bp. Alignment and synteny analysis of C. bombi and C. expoeki versus al […]


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

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5741766
PMID: 29273719
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-18374-y

[…] 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  […]
