Erratum to: OrthoFiller: utilising data from multiple species to improve the completeness of genome annotations

The original article was published in BMC Genomics 2017 18:390


After publication of the original article [1] the authors found the following errors had occurred:

  1. 1.

    Saccaromyces should be spelt Saccharomyces in Table 1. (Table 1)

  2. 2.

    Kluveromyces should be spelt Kluyveromyces in Table 1. (Table 1)

  3. 3.

    Table 4, columns 3, 5, 7 and 9: All values within these columns should be placed in brackets to indicate the standard deviation. (Table 4)

  4. 4.

    The legend for Table 4 should read: ‘Numbers shown are rounded mean values from 5 disjoint removed subsets of genes, with standard deviations bracketed and not ‘10 removed subsets’ as per the original article. (Table 4)

Table 1 Species Set A, fungal species used for algorithm validation
Table 4 Recovery of removed genes in A. thaliana, averaged over five runs

The original article has been corrected.

Corrected versions of all figures and tables are included in this Erratum:

Corrected Table 1

Corrected Table 4
