Nature News has run a correction to their recent article, "India's tuberculosis genome project under fire," outlining the Open Source Drug Development's recent announcement of their Mycobacterium tuberculosis genome sequencing project. In the original article, author K. S. Jayaraman reported that the leaders of the TB sequencing project, completed by more than 400 college-level students, among other researchers, had "no plans" to submit their annotations for peer-review. In the corrected version of the story, Jayaraman acknowledges that "since the publication of this article, Nature has learned that preparations are underway to submit the data from the M. tuberculosis genome project to peer-reviewed journals."
