  1. Post publication attention

    It has been brought to our attention post publication that we omitted reference to a previously reported method of paired tagging.

    Neiman M, Lundin S, Savolainen P, Ahmadian A (2011) Decoding a Substantial Set of Samples in Parallel by Massive Sequencing. PLoS ONE 6(3): e17785. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0017785, reports a method of paired tagging that we have missed when we revised:

    "we have not found any study which assign a pair of barcodes in NGS to improve the practicability and parallelism in analyzing large-scale multiplexed samples"

    We would like to point out that, our manuscript was first submitted to another famous Journal on 15th JAN 2011 , nearly two months before publication of the article above. Even so, we should like to take this opportunity to apologize for less meticulousness in revision and the omission.
