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.

Table 2 erratum

There is a correction to table 2 that did not make it into the final version.
In the last row of table 2 called "Runtime for experiments with 3-5 replicates..." the values for edgeR and limmaVoom should be Seconds not Minutes.

For completeness, the following table is the runtime performance (in seconds) of six methods from DE analysis comparing the 5 replicates from groups A and B from the SEQC data.

DESeq | edgeR | PoissonSeq | limmaVoom | baySeq
user.self | 410.292 | 7.380 | 12.893 | 4.897 | 20.772
sys.self | 0.356 | 0.004 | 0.153 | 0.011 | 0.166
elapsed | 413.751 | 7.904 | 13.343 | 4.911 | 2028.279
