SyMAP (Synteny Mapping and Analysis Program) is a software package for detecting,displaying, and querying syntenic relationships between sequenced chromosomes and/or FPC physical maps. It is designed for medium-to-high divergent eukaryotic genomes (not bacteria). It can align a draft genome to a fully sequenced genome, but not draft-to-draft. It can perform self-synteny.

  • Latest SyMAP release: v5.0.1 (16-Feb-2020) see Release Notes.
  • The SyMAP package includes demo files for synteny computation using fully sequenced chromosomes, draft contig sets, and FPC physical maps.
  • The System Guide provides instructions on the running the demo and creating projects
  • The User Guide explains the interactive displays and Tour provides a visual tour.
  • SyMAP can run as a standalone desktop application or from the web .
