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.

Figure 1
Fig. 3

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

Figure 2
Fig. 4

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.

Figure 3
Fig. 5

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.

  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.
