This track displays simple tandem repeats (possibly imperfect repeats) on the 15 Oct 2018 Diabrotica virgifera virgifera/GCF_003013835.1_Dvir_v2.0/GCF_003013835.1 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 662,308 items in the track covering 104,734,581 bases, assembly size 2,418,073,815 bases, percent coverage % 4.33.
For more information about the TRF program, see Benson (1999).
