No abstract


Following publication of our paper in BioData Mining[1], it came to light that numerous sections of text were similar or identical to a previous publication by Robinson and Oshlack [2]. In extending the method proposed by Robinson and Oshlack, we inadvertently copied text from their article [2]. We acknowledge that these areas of text should have been clearly indicated as quotations or excluded entirely. We sincerely apologize for this oversight.
