Correction to: Genome-wide association study reveals 14 new SNPs and confirms two structural variants highly associated with the horned/polled phenotype in goats
BMC Genomics volume 23, Article number: 117 (2022)
Correction to: BMC Genomics 22, 769 (2021)
Following publication of the original article , the authors noted several typographical errors [corrections in boldface]:
The second sentence of the first paragraph of the Results should read: “A total of 14,112,599 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) (14,047,290 biallelic and 65,309 multiallelic) and 1,303,926 short insertions and deletions (Indels) were identified across the goat autosomal genome.”
The last sentence of the first paragraph of the ‘Short-read alignment and variant calling annotation’ should read: “The ARS1 goat assembly was generated from a horned adult male San Clemente goat.”
The second-to-last sentence of the last paragraph of the ‘Methods’ section should read: “We then used the combination of the 1822-bp and 369-bp fragments to classify horned, polled, and PIS-affected goats, in 333 sampled goats from four Chinese goat breeds (i.e., JT: n = 150 [86 horned, 60 polled, and 4 PIS-affected], CB: n = 23, TC: n = 42, and NJ: n = 118 [54 male, 64 female]).”
The authors apologize for any inconvenience that these errors may have caused.
The original article  has been updated.
