Figure 1

Each arrow represents one gene with its direction of transcription. Brown arrows are genes with a detected paralogue, and pink arrows are genes with no paralogue. Paralogy relations are indicated by a solid line, red for genes with a BRH match, and blue for genes with a non-BRH syntenic match. Genes at the telomeric ends have paralogues scattered between different chromosomes, probably as a result of frequent recombination.
