In the original article, there was a mistake in the legend for Table 1 as published. The citation of the Ehrlichia chaffeensis GSCID genomic project was missing. The correct legend appears below. The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way.

TABLE 1 | Main biological and genetic characteristics of the eight Ehrlichia chaffeensis strains analyzed. Adapted from Rikihisa et al. (2011).
