Figure 12.30Comparison between the Drosophila HOM-C gene complex and the four Hox clusters of vertebrates

Genes that code for proteins with related structures and functions are indicated by the colors. For more details on the evolution of the Hox clusters, see Section 15.2.1. The diagram does not reflect the actual lengths of the genes. Gene names are given in the legend to Figure 12.29.
