Syntenic loci were mapped using an INPARANOID-based strategy. As described in the results section, syntenic loci were defined as non-G217B contigs containing INPARANOID-based orthologs (y-axis) of genes within 20 kb of novel TARs (x-axis). TBLASTX was used for comparison of the syntenic loci at the sequence level (main diagonal plot). The red transcript represents the novel TAR. Each of the other colors represents an ortholog pair in the two species.
