Figure S3 - Comparative maps of several solanaceous species and the deduced genome arrangement of MRCAs (close-up of Figure 4). Designation of chromosome and chromosome segment (a-c) as well as color codes follow Additional File 2. Nomenclature of MRCAs (ATPt, ATE and ATP) follows Figure 1. Maps of non-tomato species are depicted in a comparative way to the tomato map as follows. A black arrow depicts an inversion relative to tomato (a grey arrow for an uncertain inversion). A black bar depicts the breakpoint region of a translocation relative to tomato (a grey bar for an uncertain translocation). Two black bars connected by a curve indicate that the segment in between is excised in a translocation while the remained parts stay together, e.g. E10a is embedded in E3b. "1+" (or "2+") on a single arrow indicates that the region has experienced at least one (or two) inversions but the exact number remains to be determined. Markers displayed on the tomato map were used to define breakpoint regions of translocations and borders of inversions. The prefix (in parentheses) of a marker name specifies at which non-tomato maps the marker locates (E = eggplant, P = pepper, N = Nicotiana). Due to a different tomato map used for tomato-potato comparison, location and length of inversions on the potato map are approximate [3,8]. White dots indicate the approximate centromere location of the tomato chromosomes.
