Figure 3.

The proportion of gene pairs with conserved linkage, as defined by residing in the same orthologous landmark, increases with increasing IGD, except for convergently oriented gene pairs, where greater IGD predicts a lower rate of conservation consistent with more opportunities for rearrangement. GOO, gene order and orientation synteny definition.
