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 diseases.

There are 540,267 items in the track covering 42,833,190 bases, assembly size 2,615,499,683 bases, percent coverage % 1.64.
