BMC Bioinformatics201819:181

The original article was published in BMC Bioinformatics 2017 18:489


After publication of the original article [1], it was noticed that the Acknowledgement statement was incorrect. The original statement reads:

“This project is supported by NIHR15GM114739, FDABAA-15-00121, AEDC grant #77138 and NIGMS P20GM103429.”

However, the correct Acknowledgement statement should instead read:

“This project is partially supported by NIHR15GM114739, AEDC grant #77138, NIGMS P20GM103429 and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), contract No. HHSF223201510172C and HHSF223201610111C. However, the information contained herein represents the position of the author(s) and not necessarily that of the NIH and FDA.”
