synteny

 [sin´tĕ-ne]
the presence together on the same chromosome of two or more gene loci whether or not in such proximity that they may be subject to linkage. adj., adj synten´ic.

syn·te·ny

(sin'te-nē),
The relationship between two genetic loci (not genes) represented on the same chromosomal pair or (for haploid chromosomes) on the same chromosome; an anatomic rather than a segregational relationship.

synteny

two or more LOCI that lie on the same CHROMOSOME are syntenic (literally on the same ribbon). Correlation of the presence or absence of each of a set of chromosomes with the presence or absence of specific gene products is synteny testing.
