Interruption of synteny block by disruption of strandedness. This region in Chromosome III of the C. elegans genome contains nine genes, all of which have one-to-one relationships to their orthologous genes in a syntenic region in C. briggsae. The perfect synteny is disrupted by one gene, F54G8.1, whose ortholog is inverted in C. briggsae. The two adjacent perfect synteny blocks are merged into one large synteny block when we allow strandedness of genes to vary.
