Homologous alignments of 10 legume genomes with vitis vinifera as reference

  With grape as reference genome, genomic paralogy, orthology and outparalogy informations within and among 10 legumes were displayed in 69 circles: The curved lines within inner circle, colored by eudicot ancestoral 7 chromosomes (Jaillon et al. 2007), linked paralog pairs on grape 19 chromosomes produced by CEH. The short lines forming the innermost circles represents all predicted genes in grape, which have 2 sets of paralogous regions, forming another two circles. Each of the three sets of grape paralogous chromosomal regions have 2 orthologous copies in a legume with exception of soybean, which would have 4. Therefore, 11 genome will result in 69 circles in the figure. Each circle is colored as to its source plant corresponding to the color scheme in Fig. 1a. Homologous genes donoted by shot lines standing on a chromosome circle, and colored as to its chromosome number in the source plant shown in the inset legend.
