Author Correction: Roadmap for naming uncultivated Archaea and Bacteria

The Original Article was published on 08 June 2020

Correction to: Nature Microbiology, published online 8 June 2020.

In the version of this Consensus Statement originally published, Pablo Yarza was mistakenly not included in the author list. Also, in Supplementary Table 1, Alexander Jaffe was missing from the list of endorsees. These errors have now been corrected and the updated Supplementary Table 1 is available online.
