Fig. 3

A plot of genome rearrangement among three species of Anopheles. Five chromosomal arms of An. albimanus (alb), An. atroparvus (atr), and An. gambiae (gam) are shown. Chromosome elements are labeled as e1 - e5. Black rectangles along the chromosomes represent conserved synteny blocks. Blocks conserved among species are connected by blue lines if they are in the same orientation and by red lines if they are in reverse orientation relative to An. atroparvus blocks, which were chosen as standard. Centromeres are on the top of each element. The pericentromeric region of the An. atroparvus 2R arm (e4) exchanged genomic material with e2, e3, and e5, and the pericentromeric region of the An. atroparvus 2L (e3) exchanged genomic material with e5 of other species during evolution of Anopheles
