Microsynteny between contig 149 from the C. melo physical map and a 370-kb region of scaffold 542 from the C. sativus genome assembly at Phytozome v5.0. Contig 149 has an estimated size of 514 kb and consists of 19 BACs. There are 28 available BES, represented as full or empty dots at the end of the BACs; full dots represent BES that map to the selected cucumber region whereas empty dots represent BES with no hits. Dark violet dots represent BES with BLAST matches against the cucumber sequence. Violet lines connect BES with the corresponding homologous cucumber regions. Two genetic markers (RFLPs mc268 and mc301) are known to map in the contig 149 region. Green lines show the mapping position of both markers on the cucumber sequence.
