Nat. Biotechnol. 23, 539–545 (2005)

In Table 1, page 540, the source of funding for the Singapore Tissue Network was given as the “Singapore Biomedical Research Council, Agency for Science, Technology and Research, Ministry of Health and the Genome Institute of Singapore.” It should have read the “Singapore's Biomedical Research Council of the Agency for Science Technology and Research.” In addition, the network does not, as stated, collect “genomic information from Singapore population groups”; the network collects and distributes research biospecimens including tissues and DNA with informed consent.
