Additional file 7: of Formation of chimeric genes with essential functions at the origin of eukaryotes

Figure S5. One example of intron position conservation between one Opimoda (M. brevicollis, gi: 167536479) and one Diphoda (P. tetraurelia, gi:145550193) S-genes (family 11,734). Each sequence is represented in red. The yellow circles represent the intron positions on the sequence. The black segments on top of each sequence show the component positions. Their position is also mapped on the S-genes in blue. Each conserved intron is numbered. The conserved introns localized between two components are in orange. (PNG 263 kb)
