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.

Correction
After publication, it was observed that a correction is warranted in our article [1]. We regret and apologize for this error.
To determine phenotypic divergence we used phenotypic similarity scores as obtained from van Driel et al. 2006 [2] and not CIPHER score [3]. The phenotype similarity scores have been calculated by text mining of OMIM phenotypes using Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) terms. Hence, throughout the article CIPHER score must be read as phenotypic similarity score.

We thank and appreciate Xuebing Wu, one of the authors on reference 3, for kindly bringing this error to our notice.
