This track displays simple tandem repeats (possibly imperfect repeats) on the 07 Jul 2021 Mythimna ferrago/GCA_910589285.1_ilMytFerr1.1/GCA_910589285.1 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 200,504 items in the track covering 25,994,303 bases, assembly size 861,042,006 bases, percent coverage % 3.02.
