W e performed pairwise comparisons between Magnaporthe grisea chromosome VII and the genome sequences of Fusarium graminearum, Aspergillus nidulans, and Neurospora crassa to identify regions of conserved synteny among the fungi. Segmental homologs (i.e. syntenic blocks) containing 5 or more genes (P
