Correction to: Genetic characterization of Addison’s disease in Bearded Collies

The Original Article was published on 26 November 2020

Correction to: BMC Genomics (2020) 21:833

Following publication of the original article [1], it was noted that due to a typesetting error the caption of Fig. 1 was mistakenly captured within the main body of the article.

Manhattan Plots. Chi-square based allelic association (a) and association testing after 100,000 max(T) permutations (b) in PLINK for 103 unrelated Bearded Collies (41 cases, 62 healthy controls; λGC = 1.2280). c Association testing using GEMMA’s univariate linear mixed model approach to account for population substructure of the same dataset (λGC = 1.0328). The blue and red lines indicate suggestive (p < 0.00005; −log10[p-value] ≥ 4.3) and Bonferroni-adjusted genome-wide significance threshold (−log10[p-value] ≥ 5.75), respectively

Furthermore, the layout of the online versions of Tables 1 and 2 have been updated to improve the presentation of the genotype comparisons.

The correct Fig. 1 with the caption has been included in this Correction article, and the original article has been updated.
