Microsynteny are small regions of synteny identified between two or more genomic regions. Microsynteny is usually inferred by a collinear arrangement of homologous genes in those genomic regions.

Microsynteny as visualized in GEvo. Note the collinear order of homologous gene pairs and the set of tandem gene duplications on the left side of the top panel. View can be regenerated: http://genomevolution.org/r/5599.
