XDMR is a dispersed repetitive element.
A brief description of the entry. Suggestions for modification to this description can be submitted using the adjacent pencil icon.
This is relatively ancient family of repeats. Originally, it has been described as an X chromosome specific repeat . However, multiple copies of XDMR are present in other chromosomes also. XDMR forms dispersed clusters.

Number of matches to this model that meet the "Gathering" threshold and more stringent "Trusted" threshold. For each threshold, two numbers are shown: (1) the number of matches to this model after removing redundant hits to other models ("non-redundant"), and (2) the total number of matches above threshold, including those with better scoring matches to other models ("all hits").
The model is 361 positions long. The average length of non-redundant hits to the model is 245.2. This table shows the number of hits above score thresholds:
|non-redundant||all hits||non-redundant||all hits|
