The fourth author’s name appears incorrectly in the citation. The correct citation is: Petersen TN, Lukjancenko O, Thomsen MCF, Sperotto MM, Lund O, Møller Aarestrup F, et al. (2017) MGmapper: Reference based mapping and taxonomy annotation of metagenomics sequence reads. PLoS ONE 12(5): e0176469. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0176469

There are errors in the last sentence of the fifth paragraph of the Results. The correct sentence is: For the in silico dataset (250bp), six methods performed with no errors i.e. CLARK [19], Kraken, Kraken filtered, MEGAN4 BLASTN, MetaCV [20] and RITA.

References 19 and 20 should be:
