Microsynteny between the genomic regions with BRAMI-1 insertions and homologous blocks in B. rapa and A. thaliana. (a) Genomic region including 3 kb upstream from the start codon and 3 kb downstream from the stop codon of Bra024324 compared with those of its two paralogs and Arabidopsis ortholog. (b) Genomic region including 2 kb upstream from the start codon and 0.3 kb downstream from the stop codon of Bra010574 compared with those of its paralog and Arabidopsis ortholog. Genomic organization, such as exon and intron location, is based on annotation information in BRAD for B. rapa and TAIR for A. thaliana. Red lines indicate exons of each gene annotation. The gray bars connecting boxes on genome sequences indicate synteny blocks present in both sequences. The position of the MITE insertion is indicated by both an asterisk and a green block. The map was generated based on nucleotide sequence similarity determined by BLASTn search.
