PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Inaccurate information in Table 1

I would like to point out a factual inaccuracy in Table 1. The resource that hosts the Picea abies genome and associated expression visualisation tools is open with no restriction. The genome and resource is described in the open access paper by Nystedt et al. (2013). All data from the project is available in public access databases.

I would also point out that the resource does not only host draft genome assemblies of aspen species, it also includes a number of tools for exploring curated sets of public gene expression data.

I am a co-author on Nystedt et al. (2013) and the lead developer of the and resources.
