In the version of this News & Views originally published, the caption of Fig. 1 failed to acknowledge that the figure was adapted from Fig. 1 of E. J. Scully, U. Kanjee & M. T. Duraisingh Curr. Opin. Microbiol. 40, 21–31; 2017. This omission failed to recognize the scholarly work of Erik J. Scully, Usheer Kanjee and Manoj T. Duraisingh in generating the original version of the figure. Figure 1 has now been replaced in the News & Views with a new figure and caption (see below) describing the status of genome sequencing for primate-infecting species in the Plasmodium genus, and the paper by Scully et al. has been cited in the caption and added to the reference list at number 12. The publisher and editors apologize to the authors of the original figure, the author of the News & Views, and our readers for this mistake.
