  1. Details about the 10 most active HERVs and the two HERVs that code for the syncytin proteins. The HERVs are sorted in a decreasing activity order, rank is the position in this ordering. "Chr", "start" and "end" tell the chromosome and sequence start and end positions of the HERV in this chromosome (in the July 2003 version (hg16) of the human genome). "Subgenes" describes the structure and "group" the HERV group of the HERV. "ESTs" is the count of EST matches to the HERV. "Hit area" briefly describes where the ESTs match the HERV. The HERV with rank 31 is syncytin and the HERV with rank 62 is syncytin-2.
