Description

This track displays simple tandem repeats (possibly imperfect repeats) on the 31 Dec 2019 Aythya fuligula/GCF_009819795.1_bAytFul2.pri/GCA_009819795.1 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 411,356 items in the track covering 19,279,906 bases, assembly size 1,127,004,725 bases, percent coverage % 1.71.

Methods

For more information about the TRF program, see Benson (1999).
