  • Genomic regulatory blocks underlie extensive microsynteny conservation in insects 

    Engström, Pär G.; Sui, Shannan J. Ho; Drivenes, Øyvind; Becker, Thomas S.; Lenhard, Boris (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2007-11-07)
    Insect genomes contain larger blocks of conserved gene order (microsynteny) than would be expected under a random breakage model of chromosome evolution. We present evidence that microsynteny has been retained to keep ...
