Correction to: Journal of Human Genetics (2010) 55, 314–322; doi:10.1038/jhg.2010.30; published online 23 April 2010

A typo in the above article was noticed after its publication. In the following sentence from the Materials and methods section of the original article, the second ‘DYS392’ with underline is a typo. It should be corrected as ‘DYS393’. This correction does not alter the results and their interpretation as discussed in the paper.

‘A total of eight multiallelic short tandem repeat (STR) loci were genotyped for subjects of haplogroup R1 and J, including two trinucleotide-repeat polymorphisms (DYS388 and DYS392), and six tetranucleotide-repeat polymorphisms (DYS19, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391 and DYS392).’

The authors would like to apologize for this error.
