Hi,

I downloaded the repeats from UCSC repeatMasker as fa.out files and converted them to bed files simply using awk. I am now trying to determine the the orientation of the repeats. I know that i can check this with regard to the start and end position. Looking at this data seems that all my start position is lower than the end position suggesting that all my repeats are on positive strand? I might be wrong but this does not sound right. Can that be true that all repeats are on positive strand? Or am i missing something important here?

The reverse complement of a repeat is still a repeat.

Repeat sequences are not strand specific, but always given on forward strand, I think that was what you are missing ;)

For the simple Repeats , That information doesn't seem to be available. And as said Michael, in the UCSC, any feature have chromStart<=chromEnd.
