This track displays simple tandem repeats (possibly imperfect repeats) on
the 20 Nov 2015 Ovis aries/GCA_000298735.2_Oar_v4.0/GCA_000298735.2 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
