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.

Legend to Figure one should read: Neighbor joining dendrogram showing clustering among the genotyped MTB strains. The 15 clusters are indicated with a numerical red font. The order of MIRU loci is as follows, left to right: 424, 577, 580, 802, 960, 1644, 1955, 2163b, 2165, 2401, 2996, 3192, 3690, 4052 and 4156.
The last two MIRU loci (i.e., 4052 and 4156) were incorrectly labelled as 4952 and 4150, respectively.
