Erratum to: Complete genome sequence of Pirellula staleyi type strain (ATCC 27377T)

The Original Article was published on 31 December 2009

Volume 1 No. 3, p. 310, Figure 1 should appear as shown below. The mature cell shape has previously been described as teardrop- to pear-shaped, with the attachment pole slightly pointed [1]. Our paper showed a rod-shaped cell, which is not the correct morphology for this species.
