Abstract

In our paper, we reported differential gene expression and RNA editing by the wood-decaying basidiomycete Fomitopsis pinicola. After publication, we discovered that the RNA editing results (but not the gene expression results) are artifactual, because we mapped RNAseq reads only to the assembled reference genome, rather than mapping both RNAseq reads and unassembled genomic DNA reads to the assembled reference genome (a technical note describing the source of the artifact in detail will be submitted elsewhere). For this reason, we retract the article and apologize for the inconvenience it may have caused to the readers. A revised version of the manuscript that corrects the error was submitted and peer reviewed and is being published simultaneously (https://doi.org/10.1128/AEM.00329-21)
