This track displays simple tandem repeats (possibly imperfect repeats) on the 05 Nov 2021 Theristicus caerulescens/GCA_020745775.1_bTheCae1.pri.cur/GCA_020745775.1 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 188,606 items in the track covering 12,202,135 bases, assembly size 1,203,372,763 bases, percent coverage % 1.01.
