  1. Overview of synteny blocks identified by comparisons between the genetic map of A. millepora and other eukaryotic genome sequences, with permutation tests to evaluate significance of synteny blocks. Probabilities were based on permutation tests, as described in Materials and methods. The P-value reported for overall significance reflects the likelihood that the observed number of conserved synteny blocks would be expected by random chance. Significance of synteny block sizes was based on the likelihood that a block containing at least that many markers would be expected by chance.
