In our article in BMC Cancer [1] we modelled our graph for the passage of bromodeoxyuridine-labelled cells through the cell cycle presented in Figure 1 on the figure published by Johansson et al. [2]. We regret that we failed to quote this article and we are grateful to its authors and the editors for bringing this matter to our attention.
