Figure 4.

A schematic representation of the procedure for identifying syntenic noncoding (flanking) regions. Flanking regions (10000 nts) are scanned in a sliding window, equal to the length of conceptual human pseudogene transcript), by globally aligning it to the upstream/downstream regions of the human pseudogene. The best scoring window is identified, which corresponds to the syntenic (flanking) region in the monkey genome.
