Chromosomal map and depiction of synteny between piroplasms. T. equi (Te), T. annulata (Ta), T. parva (Tp) and B. bovis (Bb) chromosomes are shown with the T. equi chromosome represented by the thin black line, and corresponding syntenic regions from other species’ chromosomes shown as color blocks. Shades of red represent chromosomes 1, shades of yellow represent chromosomes 2, shades of green represent chromosomes 3, and shades of blue represent chromosomes 4. To the left of the Te chromosome are indicated genes discussed in the manuscript: purple bars represent locations of ema family members, black bars represent the location of genes used in phylogenetic analysis and brown bars represent the two rRNA operons.
