A cucumber syntenic block view of 12 melon chromosomes (I to XII). Number(s) within each melon chromosome indicated corresponding cucumber chromosome numbers with significant synteny. Segments with the same color belong to the same cucumber chromosome. Length of chromosome was drawn based on number of marker loci used for inference of syntenic blocks which is an approximation of actual length of each chromosome.
