There is a very high volume of traffic coming from your site (IP address 3.236.218.88) as of Sun Oct 17 23:05:28 2021 (California time). So that other users get a fair share of our bandwidth, we are putting in a delay of 17.0 seconds before we service your request. This delay will slowly decrease over a half hour as activity returns to normal. This high volume of traffic is likely due to program-driven rather than interactive access, or the submission of queries on a large number of sequences. If you are making large batch queries, please write to our genome@soe.ucsc.edu public mailing list and inquire about more efficient ways to access our data. If you are sharing an IP address with someone who is submitting large batch queries, we apologize for the inconvenience. To use the genome browser functionality from a Unix command line, please read <a href='http://genome.ucsc.edu/FAQ/FAQdownloads.html#download36'>our FAQ</a> on this topic.

Description

This track displays simple tandem repeats (possibly imperfect repeats) 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.

Methods

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

Credits

TRF was written by Gary Benson.
