PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Typing error in Table 2

Dear Sir,
Upon reading the final version of Table 2 of our article I noticed the presence of a typing error. In row "Ppa-cel-1", column "synonymous substitutions" the figures read "0-1.8%" but should correctly be "0-8.1%". This correction should be brought to the attention of the readers of the article.
