This track displays simple tandem repeats (possibly imperfect repeats) on the 15 Jan 2019 Helogale parvula/GCA_004023845.1_HelPar_v1_BIUU/GCA_004023845.1 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 595,520 items in the track covering 26,650,093 bases, assembly size 2,392,471,390 bases, percent coverage % 1.11.
