List of used genomes, Repbase Update, and Gypsy Database elements. All used metazoan genomes are listed together with an internal identifier. Additionally we give the current URL from which the genome sequence can be accessed, the accession numbers, number of sequences of the genome included in our analysis, overall number of nucleotides, the number of BEL/Pao elements we identified in that genome, the number of different BEL/Pao families we identified in that genome, and to which subkingdom/superphylum/phylum the species belong. Additionally we list all mammalian genomes we used and all genomes we excluded from our analysis. Furthermore, we give the name of all BEL/Pao elements from Repbase Update and from the Gypsy Database, together with the species name they occur in, and an internal identifier. The internal identifiers are also used for the nucleotide sequences in additional file 1 and in the sequence alignment of additional file 7.
