Comparative analyzes of LG7 showing the conservation of genomic blocks among Nile tilapia, medaka, stickleback, pufferfish, and other vertebrates. BAC-labeled metaphase chromosomes are showed on the left, followed by ideograms and LG7 of O. niloticus. The ideogram was inverted according to LG7 orientation. The three markers (UNH179, DUSP6, and UNH896) are identified by different colors and the chromosome positions for medaka, stickleback, and pufferfish are indicated in Mb on the right. The table (below the comparative maps) summarizes the results of comparative analyzes with other vertebrates. The numbers represent the chromosomes identified and the conserved genomic regions are highlighted in different colors. The positions of the markers in the chromosomes can be found at www.ensembl.org webcite.
