Correction: Diatom genomes come of age


After the publication of this minireview [1], we noted errors in the figures given in Table Table11 and the text for the percentage of genome that is non-coding. The percentages should be 42% for Thalassiosira pseudonana and 45% for Phaeodactylum tricornutum (see Table Table11 a corrected version of Table Table11).
