A Corrigendum on
A Metataxonomic Tool to Investigate the Diversity of Treponema

by Hallmaier-Wacker, L. K., Lüert, S., Gronow, S., Spröer, C., Overmann, J., Buller, N., et al. (2019). Front. Microbiol. 10:2094. doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2019.02094

In the original article, there was a mistake in Figure 1 as published. The figure contains an error in the number of cycles for the “add indices and adapters” step. The step should read 8 cycles instead of 20 cycles. The corrected Figure 1 appears below.

The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. The original article has been updated.
