Figure 2: Representation of the successive duplications of the Paramecium genome.

From: Global trends of whole-genome duplications revealed by the ciliate Paramecium tetraurelia

Figure 2

The exterior circle displays all chromosome-sized scaffolds, and the three interior circles show the reconstructed sequences obtained by fusion of the paired sequences from each previous step. Red lines link pairs of genes with a BRH match, and blue lines link pairs of genes with a non-BRH match that were added on the basis of syntenic position. Only the BRHs that link two genes in the same paralogon are represented. The position of an ancestral block is unrelated to the position of its constituents in the previous circle.
