This track displays simple tandem repeats (possibly imperfect repeats) on
the 08 Nov 2011 Leishmania mexicana MHOM/GT/2001/U1103/GCF_000234665.1_ASM23466v4/GCF_000234665.1 genome assembly,
located by Tandem Repeats
Finder (TRF) which is specialized for this purpose. These repeats can
occur within coding regions of genes and may be quite
polymorphic. Repeat expansions are sometimes associated with specific
