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.

Correction: Forward ends are "less" permuted than the reverse ends

The overall frequencies of forward HFSs are greater than that of the reserve HFSs (Figure 7 and additional file 3), again suggesting that the replication and packaging of the genome is asymmetric and that the forward ends (5' relative to the genome) are less permuted than the reverse ends (3' relative to the genome).
