  1. Inaccurate information in Table 1

    Nathaniel Street, UmeƄ University

    27 June 2013

    I would like to point out a factual inaccuracy in Table 1. The ConGenIE.org resource that hosts the Picea abies genome and associated expression visualisation tools is open with no restriction. The genome and resource is described in the open access paper by Nystedt et al. (2013). All data from the project is available in public access databases.

    I would also point out that the PopGenIE.org resource does not only host draft genome assemblies of aspen species, it also includes a number of tools for exploring curated sets of public gene expression data.
