Main text

Shropshire JD, Rokas A. 2017. Heredity: The gene family that cheats Mendel. eLife 6:e28567. doi: 10.7554/eLife.28567.

Published 20, June 2017

The gene names in the example of the two-gene model provided on panel B of Figure 1 were incorrectly spelled and abbreviated. We have corrected this error by replacing the sentence "Example: sp (spore killing) and rsp (resistant to sp) genes in Neurospora bread molds" with the sentence: "Example: sk (spore killer) and rsk (resistant to sk) genes in Neurospora bread molds" on panel B of Figure 1. Please note that this correction does not affect the results and conclusions of the original paper.

The corrected Figure 1 is shown here:

The originally published Figure 1 is also shown for reference:

The article has been corrected accordingly.
