This track displays simple tandem repeats (possibly imperfect repeats) on the 09 Jul 2016 Theobroma cacao/GCF_000208745.1_Criollo_cocoa_genome_V2/GCF_000208745.1 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 99,229 items in the track covering 8,649,988 bases, assembly size 324,879,930 bases, percent coverage % 2.66.
