This track displays simple tandem repeats (possibly imperfect repeats) on the 16 Feb 2021 Noctua pronuba/GCA_905220335.1_ilNocPron1.1/GCA_905220335.1 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 diseases.

There are 84,012 items in the track covering 10,789,381 bases, assembly size 529,194,529 bases, percent coverage % 2.04.
