Density of genes on pig chromosomes, as demonstrated by localization of the EST assemblies. Loci aligned by the expressed sequence tag assemblies within 5-Mb windows on the sequences of pig autosomes and the X chromosome (Sscrofa10.2) were counted. Each window slides by 100 kb. Solid lines indicate loci in the orientation from pter to qter on the chromosomes, and dotted lines indicate loci in the orientation from qter to pter.
