Marsupial Genome Sequences: Providing Insight into Evolution and Disease
Arrangement of genes from conserved segments C10, C11, and C12 in chicken (outgroup) and marsupials. Most genes from these three segments are intermingled on chicken chromosome 1. They remain together on devil chromosome 3 but are distributed across two chromosomes both in the tammar wallaby and opossum, with independently derived breakpoints. Vertical lines indicated conserved blocks of genes.
