Following the publication of this article [1], the authors noted the following errors:

  1. 1)

    In the Results section the sentence “Furthermore, qRT-PCR analysis verified 18 randomly chosen genes from those significantly enriched in the KEGG pathway” should be “Furthermore, qRT-PCR analysis verified 15 randomly chosen genes from those significantly enriched in the KEGG pathway.”

  2. 2)

    In Fig. 4, caption (b) “Eighteen DEGs from significant KEGG Pathway Classification Enrichment were randomly selected for qRT-PCR validation” should be “b Fifteen DEGs from significant KEGG Pathway Classification Enrichment were randomly selected for qRT-PCR validation.”

  3. 3)

    Fig. 4b was duplicated as Fig. 5b. The correct Fig. 5 is provided in this Correction.

Proteins involved in cancer-related signaling pathways in P. brassicae and qRT-PCR validation of the expression pattern. a Schematic diagram of proteins encoded by genes of cancer-related signaling pathways in P. brassicae. The black frames represented conserved domains in the genes encoded proteins. The information of conserved domain, e-value, and length was obtained from NCBI database. b Twelve core genes of cancer-related signaling pathways (marked with black solid triangle in (a) were chosen for qRT-PCR validation. Expression levels of these 12 genes from the three different samples (RS, GS and IN) were measured by RNA-seq data (Red line chart) and qRT-PCR data (black histogram). The actin gene of P. brassicae was used as an internal control to normalize the expression level. Data from qRT-PCR represent the means and standard deviations (three replications). R-value of Pearson’s correlation coefficient was used to measure the consistency of the RNA-seq data and qRT-PCR. See Additional file 3: Table S1 and Additional file 4: Table S2 for genes information
