First paragraph (this article has no abstract)

After the publication of this work [1], we became aware of the fact that the originally published Figure S-Three in the Additional file 1 was based on incorrectly simulated data. This simulation was accidentally performed with wrong parameter values for the total memory pool size nmp. As a consequence, Figure S-Three did not show the analysis we described in the figure legend. We repeated the simulations with the correct parameter values. The revised Figure S-Three does not change our conclusions and further corroborates the claims we made in the main manuscript (p.6 Results - Replacement type): "There is no clear preference for the one or the other replacement type for specific fractions of memory pool replaced as the relative fitness differs very little from one. In general, the trend of the relative fitness estimated between different replacement types is independent of the pathogen environment. These findings are consistent for different memory pool sizes nmp."
