SyMAP Rosids Synteny v1
AGCoL | SyMAPdb | SyMAP Software
Synteny of two varieties of Arabidopsis (thaliana [1] and lyrata), Vitis vinifera ("common grape vine") [4], Medicago truncatula [2], Glycine max ("soybean") [5], and Populus trichocarpa ("poplar") [6]. These syntenies were computed in the year of 2012.
