The Genome and Development-Dependent Transcriptomes of Pyronema confluens: A Window into Fungal Evolution

Synteny analysis with other fungi.

A–B. Regions of sequence identity between the in silico-translated genomic sequences of the pairs T. melanosporum/P. confluens and S. macrospora/N. crassa (for comparison) were determined with the PROmer algorithm from the MUMmer package [47]. The percent identity plot (A) was plotted with gnuplot, green indicates sequences on the forward strand, blue on the reverse strand of the reference. The PROmer analysis shows a much higher percentage of regions of similarity/identity between S. macrospora and N. crassa than between T. melanosporum and P. confluens. C. The number of pairs or triplets of orthologous genes within a 20 kb (pairs) or 40 kb (triplets) region was determined for P. confluens and 10 other fungi. For comparison, the number of syntenic pairs or triplets was also determined for S. macrospora and N. crassa (bars at the right). Note that the y-axis is interrupted in two places for better visualization. Data used for this analysis are from the genome projects as indicated in the legend of Figure 3.
