A Corrigendum on
Composition and Diversity of CRISPR-Cas13a Systems in the Genus Leptotrichia

by Watanabe, S., Cui, B., Kiga, K., Aiba, Y., Tan, X.-E., Sato'o, Y., et al. (2019). Front. Microbiol. 10:2838. doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2019.02838

In the original article, there was a mistake in Table 1 as published. “GC% of L. wadei JMUB3933, JMUB3934, JCM16777, Leptotrichia sp.-1 JMUB3936, L. shahii JCM16776, L. hofstadii JCM16775, L. trevisanii JMUB3870, JMUB4039, JMUB3935 and L. buccalis C-1013-b, Leptotrchia sp.-3 F0260, Leptotrichia sp. F0590, L. goodfellowi JCM16774 and Leptotrichia sp.-6 W10393, and chromosome length of L. wadei JCM16777” were incorrect. The corrected Table 1 appears below.


Table 1. Genome and CRISPR-Cas system information of genus Leptotrichia.

In the original article, there was an error. GC% of genome-sequenced strains was incorrect.

A correction has been made to Results and Discussion, Comparative Analysis of Leptotrichia Genome, line 373-375:

As shown in Table 1, the chromosome size of the genus Leptotrichia varies from 2,142,946 to 2,829,322 bp with GC contents of 29.5% to 31.7%.

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.
