Martinez-Ruiz C, Pracana R, Stolle E, Paris CI, Nichols RA, Wurm Y. 2020. Genomic architecture and evolutionary antagonism drive allelic expression bias in the social supergene of red fire ants. eLife 9:e55862. doi: 10.7554/eLife.55862.

Published 10, August 2020

After publication, we noticed minor typographical errors that were missed during proofing in the captions of Figures 3 and 4d and Figure 1 Supplementary figures 2, 3 and 4 as well as Results and Methods. All of these errors emerged due to text re-arrangements in the later stages of review or during typesetting. None of the errors affect our results nor our interpretations.

Original caption of Figure 3:

Values of PB below 0.5 therefore indicate higher expression in SB/SB queens from single-queen colonies; values above 0.5 indicate higher expression in SB/Sb queens from multiple-queen colonies. Values of PMQ above 0.5 indicate allelic bias towards SB; values below 0.5 indicate bias towards Sb.

Corrected caption of Figure 3:

Values of PMQ below 0.5 therefore indicate higher expression in SB/SB queens from single-queen colonies; values above 0.5 indicate higher expression in SB/Sb queens from multiple-queen colonies. Values of PB above 0.5 indicate allelic bias towards SB; values below 0.5 indicate bias towards Sb.

Original caption of Figure 4d:

...the genes with higher expression of the Sb allele (x > 0) tend to be more highly expressed in queens from multiple-queen colonies (y < 0)...

Corrected caption of Figure 4d:

...the genes with higher expression of the Sb allele (y < 0) tend to be more highly expressed in queens from multiple-queen colonies (x > 0)...

Original caption of Figure 1 Figure supplements 2, 3 and 4

Differences in allele-specific expression between variants (x axis) for all genes in the supergene with enough expression information (y axis). Significant expression differences (BH adjusted p<0.05 from Wald test in DESeq2) are in green and the RefSeq ID of the significant gene is outlined in the y axis.

The article has been corrected accordingly.
