Addendum 1: In Table 1, the column labelled "Nucleotides" is referring to the actual number of nucleotides (or sequence length), and should contain a single number of order 100,000 for each sequence class (cds, 5p/3p UTR, introns), not two numbers separated by a comma and space.

Addendum 2: We found no evidence of an improvement in sequencing accuracy over time in submissions spanning from 2000 to 2003 (only coding sequence tested).
