I'm talking about CRISPR system. I know the crRNA is transcribed from the palindromic repeat and the "spacer" but I don't know where the tracrRNA comes from.

Usually the tracrRNA is a part of the CRISPR locus and is encoded in the the vicinity of the CRISPR array (e.g. upstream or downstream of the cas genes or the array).
