A corrigendum on
Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification Method for the Rapid Detection of Ralstonia solanacearum Phylotype I Mulberry Strains in China

by Huang, W., Zhang, H., Xu, J., Wang, S., Kong, X., Ding, W., et al. (2017). Front. Plant Sci. 8:76. doi: 10.3389/fpls.2017.00076

There were mistakes regarding the phylotype of strain Po35, Po40, and PoYN. Those strains belong to Phylotype II, not Phylotype III.

In the Results section, sub-section Specificity, paragraph one, samples 35–38 and 41 were allocated to Phylotype II and samples 39–40 and 42 to Phylotype III. The correct paragraph should be:

The specificity of the LAMP for detecting R. solanacearum phylotype I mulberry strains was analyzed using genomic DNA isolated from 46 representative R. solanacearum strains that belonged to Phylotypes I (sample 1–34; 43–46), II (sample 35–42), and 7 other pathogens.

In addition, in the fourth paragraph of the Discussion, it was suggested that Phylotype III was also covered when it was not. The correct paragraph should be:

To evaluate the specificity of the LAMP-based method, 53 strains were used in this study, including 46 R. solanacearum strains covering Phylotypes I, II and seven other soil- borne bacteria strains.

Finally, in Table 1, the Phylotype of No. 39 (III), 40 (III), and 42 (III) are incorrect. The corrected table appears below.
