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.

Authors' erratum

After publication we discovered an erratum in the discussion. On page 3, first column, a sentence should be changed to: "While we did not specifically quantitate non-human DNA in our samples, the high call rates we and others have reported for buccal samples suggest that bacterial contamination may, in fact, be a minor issue, perhaps due to the human-specific probes employed in large-scale genotyping."

This change will be included in the XML and PDF versions of the published article within the next few weeks to months.

We apologize for any confusion.
