Comparative analyzes of LG1 showing the conservation of genomic blocks among Nile tilapia, medaka, stickleback, pufferfish, zebrafish, and other vertebrates. BAC-labeled metaphase chromosomes are showed on the left, followed by ideograms and LG1 of O. niloticus. The three markers ( CYP19a , WT1 , and UNH995) are identified by different colors and the chromosome positions for medaka, stickleback, and pufferfish are indicated in Mb on the right of the idiogram. The table on the right summarizes the results of comparative analyzes with other vertebrates. The numbers represent the identified chromosome and the conserved genomic regions are highlighted in different colors. The position of the markers in the chromosomes can be found at www.ensembl.org webcite.
