In line 12 of page 1, replace "GmGER 9" with "GmGER 15".


After the publication of this work [1], we became aware of the fact that the gene name 'GmGER 9' was mistakenly used throughout the gene function analyses in the original manuscript due to an error between the gene identification number recorded in our notebook and the nearest matching GenBank accession. The gene name 'GmGER 9' should be changed to 'GmGER 15' in the following places:


In the last Paragraph of the results section (page 9), replace "GmGER 9" with "GmGER 15".


In line 2 of page 12, replace "GmGER 9" with "GmGER 15".

In line 5 of page 12, replace "GmGER 9" with "GmGER 15".

In line 8 of page 12, replace "GmGER 9" with "GmGER 15".


In line 1 of the Paragraph "Salt tolerance assay" on page 13, replace "GmGER 9"

with "GmGER 15".
