Erratum

Following publication of the original article [1] it was brought to our attention that there were three errors in the “Results” section of the article’s abstract. Please see below for the two sentences in which these errors occur:

1. We identified 613 differentially expressed genes (128 up-regulated and 485 down-regulated genes using cutoff |log2FC| < 1 and p < 0.05) in PBRM1 mutated group versus “pan-negative” group.

2. In addition, we identified 1405 differentially methylated CpG sites (targeting 1308 genes, |log2FC| < 1, p < 0.01) and 185 significantly altered microRNAs (|log2FC| < 1, p < 0.05) associated with truncated PBRM1 mutations.

In both sentences the present expression in the article is "|log2FC| < 1". However, this is incorrect, as the cutoff should be "|log2FC| > 1".
