Following the publication of this article [1], the authors noticed that Figs. 2, 3 and 4 were in the incorrect order and thus had incorrect captions. The images that were incorrectly published as Figs. 2, 3 and 4 should have been published as Figs. 3, 4 and 2 respectively.

The correct versions of Figs. 2, 3 and 4 with captions have been included in this Correction.

Fermentation profile of Clostridium beijerinckii DSM 6423 on glucose. C. beijerinckii DSM 6423 was cultivated in bioreactors in GAPES medium. a pH, b biomass followed by OD600, c acids and d solvents. Values are the mean and standard deviation of the 6 biological replicates. See Additional file 3 for details on the biological replicates
