Chromosome maps showing synteny of regions flanking filovirus-like elements in rat and mouse genomes with a whole chromosome view (A) and a local view (B). White asterisks represent the locations of the phylogenetic sister copies of filovirus-like elements. Five synteny blocks with a reversal distance of 2 were found between CHR 16 of the mouse and CHR 11 of the rat. The filovirus-like elements are located on a reversed synteny block (purple shading). A close up view shows the flanking gene locations and acronyms.
