This chapter presents models that deal with the case in which the order of the genes is unknown. While this assumption does not make sense for unichromosomal genomes, a distance between multichromosomal genomes can be studied, which takes into account only the data about which gene belongs to which chromosome. This distance is known as the syntenic distance. The discussions cover structural properties; lower bounds; diameter; algorithmic results; and conjectures and open problems.

Keywords:   genes, chromosomes, multichromosomal genomes, syntenic distance
