Publisher Correction: Maturation of the gut microbiome and risk of asthma in childhood

Correction to: Nature Communications, published online 10 January 2018

The originally published version of this Article contained an incorrect version of Fig. 3 that was introduced following peer review and inadvertently not corrected during the production process. Both versions contain the same set of abundance data, but the incorrect version has the children’s asthma status erroneously disconnected from the abundance data, thereby producing the non-representative p values and graphic presentations. These errors have now been rectified, with the correct version of Fig. 3 replaced in both the PDF and HTML versions of the Article.Correct version
