Published 17, August 2017

A typographical error on our part was identified in Figure 6B. We erroneously labeled one cmr6 gene in the type III-B CRISPR-Cas system in M. mediterranea CPR1 as a cas6 instead.

The corrected figure 6 is shown here:

The originally published figure 6 is shown for reference:

The language in the following sentence of the Discussion describing this type III-B CRISPR-Cas system has been amended to account for this correction.

Original text:

In addition, the ability to process type I pre-crRNAs might be carried within some type III operons; for example, the type III-B system in M. mediterranea CPR1 encodes two diverse Cas6-family proteins (Figure 6) that may enable the system to independently process pre-crRNAs from different CRISPR-Cas systems.

Corrected text:

In addition, the ability to process type I pre-crRNAs might be carried within some type III systems; for example, the type III-B system in M. mediterranea CPR1 encodes a divergent Cas6-family protein (Figure 6) that may enable the system to independently process pre-crRNAs from different CRISPR-Cas systems.

The article has been corrected accordingly.
