  1. Swellix computations were run with the parallelized bundling option on the Blue Waters computer. Each sequence was given the same number of cores as nucleotides in the sequence, ie tRNA-1EHZ has 76 nucleotides and cores. There are three HERV RNA sequences of different lengths: 141, 244, and 418 nucleotides [46]. HERV141 is the shortest known HERV RNA fragment, and HERV418 is a self-folding domain that binds the Rev. protein [47]
