Abstract

Comparison of partially sequenced cereal genomes suggests a mosaic structure consisting of recombinationally active gene-rich islands that are separated by blocks of high-copy DNA. Annotation of the whole rice genome suggests that most, but not all, cereal genes are present within the rice genome and that the high number of reported genes in this genome is probably due to duplications. Within the cereals, macrocolinearity is conserved but, at the level of individual genes, microcolinearity is frequently disrupted. Preliminary evidence from limited comparative analysis of sequenced orthologous genomic segments suggests that local gene amplification and translocation within a plant genome may be linked in some cases.
