In the original version of this Article, there was an error in the legend for Fig. 2, whereby the descriptions of panels a, b and c were presented in a different order to the corresponding figure panels. The text ‘a GWAS of duck plumage color, including 76 colored ducks and 30 white Pekin ducks. The gray horizontal dashed lines indicate the Bonferroni significance threshold of the GWAS (1 × 10−9). b Fixation index (FST) of all SNPs along chromosome 13 between mallards and Pekin ducks. Red dots indicate fixed SNPs. c The nucleotide diversity (π) of mallards (blue line) and Pekin ducks (red line) from 16.0 to 17.0 Mb on chromosome 13.’ should have read ‘a Fixation index (FST) of all SNPs along chromosome 13 between mallards and Pekin ducks. Red dots indicate fixed SNPs. b The nucleotide diversity (π) of mallards (blue line) and Pekin ducks (red line) from 16.0 to 17.0 Mb on chromosome 13. c GWAS of duck plumage color, including 76 colored ducks and 30 white Pekin ducks. The gray horizontal dashed lines indicate the Bonferroni significance threshold of the GWAS (1 × 10−9).’ This has been corrected in both the PDF and HTML versions of the Article.
