2.6. STR Page

jMorp publishes the results of Short Tandem Repeat (STR) analysis. On this page you can view the results of the analysis using Expansion Hunter. For details of the analysis method, please refer to 54KJPN-STR.

2.6.1. Directions to STR page

There are two ways to get to the STR page.

  1. Display the “ToMMo 54KJPN Short Tandem Repeat” track in the genome browser, left-click each region, and click “Show histogram in jMorp” in “Feature details” displayed on the right side.

  2. Click on each ID in the “jMorp STR ID” column in the STR panel on the gene page.

You can reach this page using either of the above.

2.6.2. STR page content

The STR page consists of four panels: “General information”, “Frequency”, “Overlapping SNVs/INDELs”, and “Genome Browser.””

The General information panel displays the region, the unit of repeat, and the name of the overlapping gene.

The Frequency panel displays the minimum, mean, median, and maximum number of repeats and a histogram for each data set, as shown in the following figure. The histograms are shown only around the mode, so if you want to check the details, please download the VCF file from the Download page.


The Overlapping SNVs/INDELs panel shows a list of SNVs and INDELs present in this area. By clicking in the Position/Alleles column, you can jump to the respective SNV/INDEL page.

The Genome Browser panel allows you to view the surrounding regions in a genome browser.
