Method p.763 right column 3rd paragraph:"Gene models were evaluated using ~10.2?gigabases (Gb) of Illumina RNA-seq data (Supplementary Fig. 5)[ref 24]."
Comments p.763 right column 3rd paragraph:"A total of 25,532 protein-coding gene loci was predicted in the v1.0 annotation (Supplementary Information and Supplementary Table 6). This is in the same range as rice (RAP2, 28,236) (primary source 23) and sorghum (v1.4, 27,640) (primary source 5), suggesting similar gene numbers across a broad diversity of grasses."
