A Corrigendum on
Independent Evolution of Strychnine Recognition by Bitter Taste Receptor Subtypes

by Xue, A. Y., Di Pizio, A., Levit, A., Yarnitzky, T., Penn, O., Pupko, T., et al. (2018). Front. Mol. Biosci. 5:9. doi: 10.3389/fmolb.2018.00009

In the original article, the baboon image was inserted without the attribution to the author, Dr. Kenneth Chiou. The attribution of the image has now been inserted in Figure 3 and Figure 4, and reads:

Baboon image created by © Kenneth Chiou, in “Population genomics of a baboon hybrid zone in Zambia”,

The authors apologize for the omission and state that the current version does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way.

The original article has been updated.
