Following publication of the original article [1], a reader spotted an incorrect citation of the reference 14 [2] in the ‘Background’. The male meiocyte isolation work described in this article [2] was carried out in rice and not in Brassica as originally stated in the ‘Background’ [1]. Thus, the following amendment to the Background section should be noted:

Original sentence:

“Several methods have been previously described or proposed for the isolation of male meiocytes [6], such as micromanipulation (Plumbago [10, 11], Nicotiana [12], Brassica [13, 14], Arabidopsis [15, 16, 17] and sunflower [18]), capillary collection of meiocytes (CCM) (Arabidopsis [19, 20] and maize [21, 22]), laser capture microdissection (LCM) in rice [23, 24, 25, 26], Percoll gradient separation (Arabidopsis [27, 28], rice [29] and Brassica [30]) and isolation of nuclei tagged in specific cell types (INTACT) in Arabidopsis [31].”

Corrected sentence:

“Several methods have been previously described or proposed for the isolation of male meiocytes [6], such as micromanipulation (Plumbago [10, 11], Nicotiana [12], Brassica [13], rice [14], Arabidopsis [15, 16, 17] and sunflower [18]), capillary collection of meiocytes (CCM) (Arabidopsis [19, 20] and maize [21, 22]), laser capture microdissection (LCM) in rice [23, 24, 25, 26], Percoll gradient separation (Arabidopsis [27, 28], rice [29] and Brassica [30]) and isolation of nuclei tagged in specific cell types (INTACT) in Arabidopsis [31].”.
