This track displays simple tandem repeats (possibly imperfect repeats) on the 13 Dec 2011 Schistosoma mansoni/GCF_000237925.1_ASM23792v2/GCF_000237925.1 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 38,375 items in the track covering 5,391,397 bases, assembly size 364,532,842 bases, percent coverage % 1.48.
For more information about the TRF program, see Benson (1999).
