Erratum to: Adrenal cortex expression quantitative trait loci in a German Holstein × Charolais cross

The original article was published in BMC Genetics 2016 17:135


Unfortunately, after publication of this article [1], it was noticed that an error in the PDF to an equation was introduced during the production process. On page 8 of the PDF, the equation reads:

$$ {y}_i={s}_j+\beta {x}_i+\S \Big|\left({a}_{if}+{a}_{im}\right)+{\varepsilon}_i $$

The equation should have read:

$$ {y}_i={s}_j+\beta {x}_i+\frac{1}{2}\ \left({a}_{if}+{a}_{im}\right)+{e}_i $$

The original article has been updated to correct this error.
