Plot of a portion of the rice chromosome 11 showing tandem arrays of disease resistance and defense response genes between positions 112.0 – 119.0 cM. The category of genes is color-coded and the arrowheads depict their direction. The numbers indicate cumulative number of all the genes predicted by TIGR on chromosome 11. The scale is based on number of genes such that the space occupied by one arrowhead corresponds to one gene, genes in the gap between arrowheads do not match with R-like genes and large gaps of unmatched genes are marked by a double slash (//).
