In our manuscript on miRNA target predictions  we made use of a number of genome alignments that we obtained from the UCSC genome browser. We regret that, due to a misunderstanding, we failed to explicitly acknowledge the sequencing centers that made the genome sequences, that were used to construct these alignments, available before publication.
These centers are: the Agencourt Bioscience Corporation  for the Drosophila ananassae, Drosophila mojavensis, and Drosophila virilis sequence data, the Genome Sequencing Center at the Washington University School of Medicine  for the Drosophila yakuba, Drosophila simulans, and Caernorhabditis remanei sequence data, the Human Genome Sequencing Center at the Baylor College of Medicine  for the Bos taurus and Rhesus macaque genome sequence, the Broad Institute  for the Monodelphis domestica genome sequence, and the Sanger Center  for the Danio rerio genome sequence.
We understand that continuing free access to data from large scale sequencing efforts requires careful acknowledgement and we apologize sincerely for this unfortunate oversight.
