Following publication of the original article [1], it was reported that the authors had not cited Wang et al. [2]. Therefore, the ‘Methods’ section, ‘Availability of data and materials’ declaration and the ‘References’ are incomplete and should be revised as described below.

In the ‘Re-sequencing of selected samples, quality checking and SNP calling’ sub-section the sentence highlighted in bold has been added:

“The individual genomes from nine indigenous chicken ecotypes (n=51) and two commercial lines (n=21) were sequenced on an Illumina Hiseq 2000 platform with a read length of 125 bp and~10.2×coverage (Additional file 1: Table S1). Whole-genome sequencing of the samples using the next-generation sequencing technique was conducted within the framework of the Global Chicken Genome Project (http://chicken.ynau.edu.cn/index/about/index.html) led by Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (KIZ-CAS) and described by Wang et al. [2, 3].”

The ‘Availability of data and materials’ declaration has been revised.

The original declaration stated: “The whole genome sequencing data for all chicken individuals generated in this study have been deposited at NCBI SRA Database with accession code: PRJNA807738 or accessible through https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/bioproject/ PRJNA807738. The NCBI accession numbers used in this study can be found in Additional file 1: Table S1. Furthermore, the whole genome sequencing data, BAM files, and genotypes (VCF) have been submitted in the ChickenSD database (http://bigd.big.ac.cn/chickensd/).”

The revised declaration should read: “The datasets used for the current study were from Wang et al [2]. The raw sequencing data, alignment BAM files, and genotypes (VCF) are available in the ChickenSD database (http://bigd.big.ac.cn/chickensd/)“.

Finally, Additional file 1: Table S1 has been updated and is provided in this Correction article.

The original article [1] has been updated.
