Microsynteny in the ovate orthologous regions of coffee tree, grapevine and Five different species of Solanaceae. The sequenced segments of the potato (Solanum bulbocastanum), tomato (Solanum lycopersicum), pepper (Capsicum annuum), eggplant (Solanum melongena) and petunia (Petunia inflata)  were compared to orthologous segments in the coffee tree (BAC clone 111O18) and the grapevine genome. Arrows symbolize the orientation of predicted coding regions. Letters and numbers linked to arrows indicate orthologous gene families as defined in Additional file 9: Table S6. Gene ovate belongs to the gene family 6. Lines link coding regions between conserved syntenic segments. Duplicate genes are represented in red while inverted genes are shown in green. Genes conserved between coffee and grape but absent in orthologous locations in the five Solanaceae species were indicated in orange. Genes present in only one species are indicated in grey.
