Correction to: Recessive VARS2 mutation underlies a novel syndrome with epilepsy, mental retardation, short stature, growth hormone deficiency, and hypogonadism

The original article was published in Human Genomics 2017 11:28

Correction

After publication of the article [1], it has been brought to our attention that there is a nomenclature issue with this article. At the time of acceptance, the VARS2 mutation was considered equivalent to the VARS mutation. However, this has changed so that VARS2 now only refers to shorter mitochondrial sequence of valyl-tRNA synthesase containing 1093 amino acids. Therefore, in the context of this article, every usage of “VARS2” should be replaced with “VARS” when referring to the causative variant.
