- The comparison of map locations of genes and markers between species. In comparisons between closely related species, this will usually uncover a high degree of conservation of synteny and co-linearity. In these cases, the likely location of many genes can be predicted from model system data. Comparisons across wider phylogenetic distances reveal increasing loss of synteny.
