Figure 11.

Empirical and theoretical curves representing the number of reuses R(l) as a function of distance l between pairs of sub-branches of the tree in Figure 4 of the five mammalian genomes (ancestral genomes were computed using MGRA [50]). The empirical curve is averaged over 1, 000 random samplings of shortest rearrangement scenarios, while the theoretical curve represents the best fit with parameters n ≈ 196, x ≈ 1:12, and m ≈ 4, 017 (see Methods).
