Correction: A reference bacterial genome dataset generated on the MinION™ portable single-molecule nanopore sequencer (Nicholas Loman, 02 January 2015)

Recently we noticed that we could not reproduce Figure 3 while analysing this data as part of a new experiment (1). This was due to a modification to the script used for extracting sequence alignment profiles from the dataset (2). On further investigation we found that an error in this script had been reported and a fix supplied by an anonymous online contributor on October 27th 2014 via Github (3). The error prevented mismatches from being properly counted in the calculation of read accuracy (insertions and deletions were). We therefore present updated versions of Figures 3 and 4 generated by the corrected script. We are grateful to the anonymous contributor who noticed this error.

Translation of Winkler's book title, part 2 (Martin Lohr, 19 July 2012)

The term "Parthenogenesis" in Winkler's title means the same as the english "parthenogenesis" (asexual reproduction). It has accidentally been translated as "pathogenesis" (meaning the origin and development of a disease). read full comment

Translation of Winkler's book title (Paul Schultze-Motel, 13 July 2012)

A better translation of "Verbreitung" in Hans Winkler's title is probably "distribution" or "occurrence" (as in a range of a species), rather than "spread" (as in disease). read full comment
