Erratum: Genome sequence of the palaeopolyploid soybean

Nature 463, 178–183 (2010)

During resubmission of this work, a paper was published1 that used a comparative genomics approach between soybean and maize to show that a single-base mutation in chromosome 19 accounts for the duplicate recessive epistasis needed to greatly reduce phytate production in soybean seed.

In this Article, the statement that: “31,264 high-confidence soybean genes have recent paralogues with Ks ≈ 0.13 synonymous substitutions per site and 4dTv ≈ 0.0566 synonymous transversions per site” is inadvertently incorrect, and instead the correct statement is that “26,501 high-confidence soybean genes have recent paralogues with Ks ≈ 0.13 synonymous substitutions per site and 4dTv ≈ 0.0566 synonymous transversions per site”. This change does not affect the overall conclusions.

Also, this work was performed under the auspices of the US Department of Energy’s Office of Science, Biological and Environmental Research Program and the Joint Genome Institute (DE-AC02-05CH11231, DE-AC52-07NA27344 and DE-AC02-06NA25396).
