Erratum to: Rewriting the blueprint of life by synthetic genomics and genome engineering

Erratum

In the version of this article that was originally published [1] there were errors in Figure three panel b (Figure 1b here) regarding the sizes of building blocks (BBs) and minichunks (wrongly denoted as 750 kb and 3000 kb, respectively). These mistakes, which were a result of clerical error that occurred during copy editing, have now been corrected online. The size of building block (BB) and minichunk is now correctly denoted as 0.75 kb and 3 kb, respectively.

synIII design and synthesis. (a) synIII design. (b) synIII synthesis. This includes a revised version of Fig. 3(b) in the originally published article [1]. The size of the building block (BB) and minichunk is now correctly denoted as 0.75 kb and 3 kb, respectively

The journal apologizes for these errors.
