whole order? The number of chromosomes can widely differ.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Heh. I was about to be snarky, but decided to look for myself. This information does not seem to be the easiest to come by. A few searches on Google Scholar got me this, but since I don't have institutional access, I can't read the full paper to know if it would help you, but it looks promising.

If you have access or can find someone who does, then maybe it will answer your question. :)
