A reader has pointed out that Appendix 1—table 3 of this paper was incomplete and also contained a number of errors. We have corrected the errors (see below) and have also corrected Figure 2, which was based on the data in this table. We have also added a source data file that includes all of the data used to plot Figure 2, including full references to the original sources for each data point: where there are multiple estimates per species, these have been averaged.
The cell volume data in Appendix 1—table 3 for the following species have been corrected: B. subtilis, E. coli, S. alaskensis, S. aureus, S. ceres, S. pombe, T. pyriformis, T. thermophila, C. reinhardtii and HeLa cell; some data are also quoted to fewer digits than before. The ribosome number data in the table for the following species have been corrected: L. interrogans, M. pneumonii, S. ceres, S. pombe, T. pyriformis, A. aestivalis and HeLa cell. The caption for this table has also been updated.
We have also replotted Figure 2 with the corrected data (see below) and the end result is very similar, but with a slightly improved regression relative to the previous version.
