  1. Footnotes: This table only lists candidates identified by our pipeline and supported by at least one additional piece of evidence: a PCR validation, b alternative allele genomic sequence, c annotation in the Database of Genomic Variants. Other candidates not listed here are in Additional file 2 and Additional file 9. The notations ‘K’ ‘H’ and ‘W’ in the HERV name represent HERV-K(HML2), HERV-H and HERV-W families respectively
