Correction to: Nature Genetics, published online 4 October 2021.

In the version of this News & Views initially published, there was a typo in the fifth sentence of the paragraph headed “State shifting and stress response.” Specifically, in the sentence now reading “The paradigm of therapeutically targeting glioma stem cells thus has a different relevance in IDH-mutant than in IDH-wild-type gliomas, as the plasticity of the latter necessitates targeting the totality of malignant cells and/or the ability of cells to de-differentiate,” the term “plasticity of the former” has been replaced with “plasticity of the latter.”

The changes have been made to the online version of the article.
