    There is an error in the legend for Figure 6. Real-Time Relative qPCR analysis of the expression of some putative stress-response genes in Panagrolaimus superbus following 12 h of desiccation at 98% RH. The contig identity for the DJ-1 transcript assayed in this experiment is incorrect. The correct contig identity for this transcript is PSC04253 and its dbEST Accession Number is GW413264.1.

    Similarly in Additional file 6: The primer sequences used for real time qPCR analysis of gene expression in Panagrolaimus superbus in response to desiccation stress, the correct contig identity for the DJ-1 transcript is PSC04253 (and not PSC02304 as incorrectly stated in Figure 6 and in Additional file 6).

    In total 3 contigs with homology to the DJ-1 gene have been identified in the P. superbus EST dataset (Culleton et al., manuscript in preparation). These contigs are PSC02304, PSC03211 and PSC04253.
