Correction to Fig. 3, "Global Phylogeny for Y. pestis"

Thank you for this very valuable study. May I point out what seems to be an error in the last sentence of the caption to fig. 3, "Global Phylogeny for Y. pestis." The sentence reads "Samples from this study (Mp and B) and ES1 have the derived state of SNP s12, which maps them closer to N07 at the beginning of branch 1." Instead of "derived," the word should, I believe, be "ancestral." I have already notified Dr. Scholz via email.
