Erratum to: draft sequencing and assembly of the genome of the world’s largest fish, the whale shark: Rhincodon typus smith 1828

The Original Article was published on 14 July 2017

Erratum:

After publication of the original article [1], the authors noted that the following errors had occurred:

  1. 1.

    The following figure captions were in the incorrect order:

  • Figure 3: The current caption for Fig. 3 is incorrect and should be the caption for Fig. 4.

Fig. 3
figure1

Overview of taxonomy of whale shark protein best matches to the nr database. Figure was constructed from best BLAST matches to the nr database using Krona [31] tool

Fig. 4
figure2

Overview of best matches to the protein database that map to the Chordata taxonomy group

The correct Figure legend should be: Overview of taxonomy of whale shark protein best matches to the nr database. Figure was constructed from best BLAST matches to the nr database using Krona [31] tool.

A fully updated Figure including the revised caption is included with this Erratum (Corrected Figure 3).

  • Figure 4: The current caption for Fig. 4 is incorrect and should be the caption for Fig. 5.

Fig. 5
figure3

Phylogeny based on alignment of conserved single-copy proteins. Silhouettes are not to scale. Accessions: Petromyzon: GCA_000148955.1, Callorhinchus: GCA_000165045.2, Latimeria: GCA_000225785.1, Danio: GCA_000002035.3, Gadus: GCA_000231765.1, Gasterosteus: GCA_000180675.1, Oryzias: version MEDAKA1 (Ensembl), Oreochromis: GCA_000188235.1, Takifugu: GCA_000180615.2, Tetraodon

The correct Figure legend should be: Overview of best matches to the protein database that map to the Chordata taxonomy group.

A fully updated Figure including the revised caption is included with this Erratum (Corrected Figure 4).

  • Figure 5: The current caption for Fig. 5 is incorrect and should be the caption for Fig. 3.

The correct Figure legend should be: Phylogeny based on alignment of conserved single-copy proteins. Silhouettes are not to scale. Accessions: Petromyzon: GCA_000148955.1, Callorhinchus: GCA_000165045.2, Latimeria: GCA_000225785.1, Danio: GCA_000002035.3, Gadus: GCA_000231765.1, Gasterosteus: GCA_000180675.1, Oryzias: version MEDAKA1 (Ensembl), Oreochromis: GCA_000188235.1, Takifugu: GCA_000180615.2, Tetraodon: GCA_000180735.1.

A fully updated Figure including the revised caption is included with this Erratum (Corrected Figure 5).

  1. 2.

    All mentions of the GenBank ID LVEK00000000 are incorrect, and should be LVEK00000000.1. This was present in both Table 1 of the original article, and in the Availability of Data and Materials section. In updated version of Table 1 (Corrected Table 1) has been included with this Erratum.
