Unfortunately, the original version of this article [1] contained an error. Table 2 values were included incorrectly. The correct values can be found below. These values should also be indicated under the “Data inspection” subsection, first paragraph found under “Gene networks for growth and meat quality traits” section:

Table 2 Trait data and GWAS results information

“…higher estimates were observed for rib eye area (REA; h2 = 0.473), total carcass weight (TCW; h2 = 0.254) and back fat thickness (BFT; h2 = 0.154). There was a negative correlation between BFT and REA (-0.604) and between BFT and TCW (-0.632) and a strong positive correlation between TCW and REA (0.762) which makes biological sense indicating that the data is consistent.”
