After publication of the original article [1] an error was noted in the Results section (subheading: Probabilistic model) of this manuscript.

The sentence “A mismatch in segment and breakpoint copy number implies that at least one segment end is left disconnected (Fig. 2 d).”

Should be referring to figure 1d, thus reading:

“A mismatch in segment and breakpoint copy number implies that at least one segment end is left disconnected (Fig. 1 d).”

These errors were introduced during typesetting, thus the publisher apologizes for this error.
