Supplementary Material

Supplementary Table 1: The genomic information of 443 full-length L1 elements in the human genome was summarized.

Supplementary Table 2: Age of chimpanzee-specific L1 elements was estimated by using the NETWORK 4.6 (http://www.fluxus-engineering.com/sharenet.htm) software. For this calculation, we used 0.15% per site per myr as the nucleotide mutation rate.
