This track displays simple tandem repeats (possibly imperfect repeats) on the 24 Mar 2021 Ectropis grisescens/GCA_017562165.1_ASM1756216v1/GCA_017562165.1 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 203,253 items in the track covering 25,667,818 bases, assembly size 784,886,525 bases, percent coverage % 3.27.
