Correction: Corrigendum: Novel variation at chr11p13 associated with cystic fibrosis lung disease severity

Correction to: Human Genome Variation (2016), 3, doi: 10.1038/hgv.2016.20; advance online publication 7 July 2016

After the online publication of this article, the authors noticed an error in the figure and legend of Figure 2.

Figure 2

Linkage disequilibrium (LD) and haplotype structure around top cystic fibrosis (CF) lung disease-associated region. The upper panels a–d show the entire CF lung disease severity association region, whereas the lower panel e indicates the LD structure and the top 5 haplotypes of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with the most significant association P value (<10−7). The sections are: (a) scale bar and genome coordinates on chr11 of University of California Santa Cruz (UCSC) hg19 reference genome; (b) CF lung disease severity association P values; (c) LD plot SNP locations with respect to the genome coordinates in a (upward tick marks) that are then mapped to the LD plot in d (slanted lines); (d) LD plot generated by Haploview; (e) haplotype structure with allele genotypes and frequencies; the first SNP (rs7939918) and last SNP (rs7120959) are labeled in black font with black arrows at the bottom; the SNP of highest significance (rs10742326) is labeled in red font with a red arrow. Asterisks (*) indicate common alleles observed in the top five haplotypes.

The correct figure should show that leftmost SNP is rs7939918.

The correct Figure 2 legend statement of this article should have read in next page.

The authors apologize for any inconvenience caused.
