Correction to: Neisseria lactamica Y92–1009 complete genome sequence

The Original Article was published on 24 July 2017


After publication of the original article [1] it was identified that an incorrect version of the manuscript has been published. This was caused by a technical error which led to a discrepancy between the editorially-accepted version of the manuscript, and the published version.

A list of Corrections is included below:

  1. 1)

    The following abbreviations have been corrected throughout the article:

    Nla changed to N. lactamica

    Nme changed to N. meningitides

    N.go changed to N. gonorrhoeae

    Nci changed to N. cinerea

  2. 2)

    Table 1: ‘Term’ and ‘Evidence code’ columns of the first 7 rows have been updated to the following:

Domain Bacteria

TAS [37]

Phylum Proteobacteria

TAS [38]

Class Betaproteobacteria

TAS [39, 40]

Order Neisseriales

TAS [39, 41]

Family - Neisseriaceae

TAS [42]

Genus Neisseria

TAS [42]

Species Neisseria lactamica

TAS [42, 43]

  1. 3)

    Table 2: Missing/blank term for MIGS 13 has been changed to read “Strain is not publicly available”.

  2. 4)

    2nd paragraph under heading “Insights from the genome sequence”: Sentence containing “…approximately a third (33.5%) of all open reading frames (ORFs) in this genome…” has been shortened to “approximately a third (33.5%) of all ORFs in this genome…”

  3. 5)

    3rd paragraph under heading “Insights from the genome sequence”: Bracketed abbreviation ‘(DUS)’ has been removed.

  4. 6)

    3rd paragraph under heading “Insights from the genome sequence”: Bracketed abbreviation ‘(CREEs)’ has been removed

  5. 7)

    Bracketed link for PHAST ‘(’ changed to reference 35.

  6. 8)

    Reference 14 initially missing from article, has now been added and correctly referenced

  7. 9)

    Reference 33 was removed, as it was a duplicate of reference 30.

  8. 10)

    References 36–40 removed, and replaced with updated reference list (36–46):
