Abstract / Description of output

imborg et al. (2012a) reported a landscape genomics analysis in herring based on the analysis of 281 single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers developed as detailed in Helyar et al. (2012). A formatting error, however, occurred, causing a mismatch between some SNP assay names and their corresponding genotype and sequence information. This error affects the correct matching of sequences, as they (rightfully) appear in GenBank and Dryad repositories, with gene annotations for outlier loci reported to covary with environmental variables. The correct SNP assay names corresponding to the outlier names presented in Tables 2–4 and in Figures 2a-b and 4 are given below (Table 1). The only major change to the original publication is the annotation results. In the original paper, Limborg et al. (2012a) discussed the annotations of three outlier genes. The three genes were annotated, respectively, to a heat shock protein (Hsp70), haemoglobin alpha subunit gene (Hba) and catalase (Cat). After correction, the SNP in Hba still annotates to the same haemoglobin alpha subunit gene, while the Hsp70 SNP corresponds to a Troponin gene, and the Cat SNP does not return a significant BLAST match. The change does not affect the overall conclusions drawn in Limborg et al. (2012a) and still suggests a role for these genes to local adaptation although the corrected results do not add to previous findings for Hsp70 and catalase genes.
