After the publication of the article ‘A hybrid BAC physical map of potato: a framework for sequencing a heterozygous genome. BMC Genomics 2011, 12:594’ [1] the submitting author was notified that the contributions of LWP and LdL were quite substantial. To properly show their contribution to the manuscript, they have been taken out of the acknowlegdements section and are now added to the authors list. LWP performed the BAC AFLP fingerprinting. LdL performed BAC pool AFLP reactions and BAC pool AFLP fingerprinting. Also, the submitting author was notified that patents and patent applications for technologies used in this publication should have been included in the acknowledgements section. Therefore, this article presents corrections to authors list, to the authors’ contributions section, and to the acknowledgements section. Also, we declare the existence competing interests. We apologize for any inconveniences these omissions may have caused.

Corrected author list

Jan M. de Boer, Theo J.A. Borm, Taco Jesse, Bart Brugmans, Lian Wiggers-Perebolte, Linda de Leeuw, Xiaomin Tang, Glenn J. Bryan, Jaap Bakker, Herman J. van Eck, and Richard G.F. Visser.



Corrected acknowledgements

JMdB, TJAB and BB were supported by the Technology Foundation STW (project WPB 5283) and the EU project APOPHYS (EU-QLRT-2001-01849). Additional support for WGP analysis by JMdB was from FES funding from the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation. The authors thank Paul Keizer and Ria Jongerius for their help with AFLP marker identifications in the mapping gels, Jeroen Werij for most of the BAC DNA isolations, Ellen van Enckevoort for additional sizing of radioactive AFLP markers, Kim Jansen for BAC AFLP fingerprinting, Hanneke Witsenboer for coordinating BAC pool fingerprinting and arranging computer and software facilities at KeyGene N.V., and Edwin van der Vossen for coordinating the WGP BAC sequencing. Marc ten Holte is acknowledged for running the MegaBACE experiments.
