MCScan is an algorithm to scan multiple genomes or subgenomes to identify putative homologous chromosomal regions, then align these regions using genes as anchors. MCScanX toolkit implements an adjusted MCScan algorithm for detection of synteny and collinearity and extends the software by incorporating 15 utility programs for display and further analyses.
