This track displays simple tandem repeats (possibly imperfect repeats) on the 08 Aug 2019 Crassostrea gigas/GCA_000297895.2_ASM29789v2/GCA_000297895.2 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 210,258 items in the track covering 33,870,954 bases, assembly size 564,789,775 bases, percent coverage % 6.00.
