Correction to: Temporal transcriptional patterns of cyanophage genes suggest synchronized infection of cyanobacteria in the oceans
Microbiome volume 8, Article number: 109 (2020)
Correction to: Microbiome 8, 68 (2020)
The below statement in the Background of the original article  was incorrect. Individual viral genes with diel transcriptional rhythms were in fact listed in the supplementary dataset S05 (Sheet 2) of Aylward et al. 2017 . This statement therefore needs to be corrected as outlined below. This correction does not affect the results and conclusions.
The original text:
“However, it was not shown in this study whether individual viral genes in a scaffold show diurnal transcriptional rhythms, as the combined transcripts mapped to all the genes in a scaffold were used for diel periodicity analyses ( reference  in this correction).”
Several viral genes in the scaffolds also showed diurnal transcriptional rhythms , but it remains to be determined whether the peak expression times of early, middle, and late cyanophage genes are different.
