This track displays regions that are likely to be useful as microsatellite
markers. These are sequences of at least 15 perfect di-nucleotide and
tri-nucleotide repeats and tend to be highly polymorphic in the
The data shown in this track are a subset of the Simple Repeats track,
selecting only those
repeats of period 2 and 3, with 100% identity and no indels and with
at least 15 copies of the repeat. The Simple Repeats track is
created using the
Tandem Repeats Finder. For more information about this
program, see Benson (1999).
Tandem Repeats Finder was written by
