Correction to: Relatively frequent switching of transcription start sites during cerebellar development

Correction

The authors of the original article [1] would like to recognize the critical contribution of core members of the FANTOM5 Consortium, who played the critical role of HeliScopeCAGE sequencing experiments, quality control of tag reads and processing of the raw sequencing data.

The revised author list includes authors Masayoshi Itoh, Hideya Kawaji, Timo Lassmann, Carsten O. Daub, Erik Arner, Piero Carninci, Yoshihide Hayashizaki and Alistair R. R. Forrest, as well as their affiliations.

The following updates to Author contributions’, Acknowledgements and Funding have also been included below:

New Author Contributions statement

PZ, TH, DS and DG generated samples for the time series. MI and PC generated the CAGE libraries. YH, COD, ARRF and PC managed and organized the FANTOM5 project. ED, TL, HK, EA and PZ performed data analysis. PZ performed biological validation experiments. PZ, DG, ED and WH wrote the manuscript. The authors read and approved the final manuscript.

Acknowledgements

Funding

The efforts of PZ, TH, DS and DG were supported by GenomeBC and National Institutes of Health, Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. FANTOM5 was made possible by a Research Grant for RIKEN Omics Science Center from MEXT to YH and a grant of the Innovative Cell Biology by Innovative Technology (Cell Innovation Program) from the MEXT, Japan to YH. It was also supported by Research Grants for RIKEN Preventive Medicine and Diagnosis Innovation Program to YH and RIKEN Centre for Life Science Technologies, Division of Genomic Technologies (from the MEXT, Japan).
