Correction to: Development of molecular confirmation tools for swift and easy rabies diagnostics

The original article was published in Virology Journal 2017 14:184


After publication of the article [1], it has been brought to our attention that an incorrect genetic sequence has been cited. On page 4, paragraph 1 the following sequence is cited “ATG GAT GCC GAC AAG ATT GTM TTY AAA GTY AAT A 3”. This is an error and the correct sequence should be “GGG GGC TTT YCC TAG GGT KAT ACW GGG CTT T 3”.
