Microsatellites and microsynteny in the chloroplast genomes of Oryza and eight other Gramineae species.
Because the maize genome is syntenous with other grass genomes, physical maps of the gene-rich regions of the maize genome will be extremely useful for examining microsynteny of particular regions across grass species.
Examination at the sequence level has revealed considerable microsynteny among the grasses, but there are some exceptions (Bennetzen et al.
