Abstract

On page 11026, the following sentences have been corrected: “ϕi were calculated to be 2.72 × 10−4 and 2.73 × 10−4 for the double-stranded, long amplicon targets of tetA and sul2, respectively. The average quantum yield per base pair was calculated to be (3.13 ± 0.77) × 10−7 bp−1 .” (The original sentences were as follows: “ϕi were calculated to be 2.72 × 10−6 and 2.73 × 10−6 for the double−stranded, long amplicon targets of tetA and sul2 , respectively. The average quantum yield per base pair was calculated to be (3.13 ± 0.77) × 10−9 bp−1 ”). With this edit, we clarify that the previously measured ϕi at 254 nm (5.99 × 10−7 bp−1 ) is only slightly greater than the sunlight ϕi determined herein, supporting the use of ϕi (calculated over the wavelength range of 280−350 nm) paired with a photoaction spectrum to account for the potential wavelength specificity of ϕi . This correction does not change the results of the work.
