Shortly after this article was published [1] the authors noticed a few errors which are outlined below:

Background paragraph 1, sentence 4, The wild type American CBS number should be: “CBS6124-2.”

Background paragraph 1, sentence 5 should be: “The Po1 series, derived directly of successive transformations of W29 [7], has been used for a number of studies.”

Background paragraph 1, sentence 6 should be: “CLIB122 or E150, the reference genome strain, is derived of a W29 to YB423-12 cross and brother–sister matings, xpr2 deletion, and introduced auxotrophies [8].”

Background paragraph 1, sentence 7 should be: “Genome sequencing efforts have covered some original isolates and their derivatives, including W29 [9], and Po1f, a product of successive transformations [10].”

Page 13, Results paragraph 10, sentence 4 should be: “Malate dehydrogenase has been studied for alternative splicing, with one form localized by an N-terminal GFP to the peroxisome matrix by expression from an integrated cassette [107].”
