BMC Evolutionary Biology 2011, 11:45  doi:10.1186/1471-2148-11-45

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 info@biomedcentral.com, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

--Methods--

1)

Taxon Sampling
Sentence 1: "A total of 2,065 16S rRNA gene sequences from the phylum cyanobacteria were downloaded from GenBank.", is not correct.

Instead it should read:
"A total of 2,064 16S rRNA gene sequences from the phylum cyanobacteria were downloaded from GenBank."


2)

Phylogenetic analyses
Phylogenetic analyses of all identified cyanobacteria
Sentence 4: "From the remaining 1,254 sequences (1235 characters) a phylogenetic tree was reconstructed running 10 maximum likelihood analyses as implemented in RAxML v7.0.4 [104].", is not correct.

Instead it should read:
"From the remaining 1,220 sequences (1261 characters) a phylogenetic tree was reconstructed running 10 maximum likelihood analyses as implemented in RAxML v7.0.4 [104].
