Publisher's Note: Error in Abstract

Posted by PLoS_CompBiol on 28 Jan 2011 at 13:40 GMT

Taken together, these results suggest that PhylOTU enables characterization of part of the biosphere currently hidden from PCR-based surveys of diversity?

An error was introduced in the preparation of this article for publication. There is a question mark at the end of the last sentence of the abstract. This sentence is a simple statement, so it should end with a period.
