Correction to: Bellefleur et al. BMC Biotechnology (2019) 19:5

https://doi.org/10.1186/s12896-019-0500-3

Following publication of the original article [1], the author reported that the gene/protein names of slr2131 and sll0180 were swapped in the Discussion section. The details of the correction are mentioned below:

Excerpt with swapped protein/gene names in the original article:

Previous research performed by Gonçalves et al. (2018) supports the hypothesis that Sll0180 is necessary for native efflux in that the removal of sll0180 from Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 caused a significant inhibition of growth due to the presence of Cm [30]. However, Gonçalves et al. (2018) did not observe a significant inhibition of growth associated with the removal of slr2131 from Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 due to the presence of Cm, as shown in the currently presented research.
