Following publication of the original article [1], the authors reported that Fig. 1 was not correctly processed during the production process. The correct Fig. 1 is given below.

The publishers apologise for the inconvenience caused. The original article [1] has been corrected.

Fig. 1

Waterfall plot of all genes with pathogenic variants. Waterfall plot of all EMCA samples that contained rare variants that passed the filter from Additional file 1: Figure S1. The main heatmap contains columns which represent an individual participant (N = 86), and rows that represent genes, while the color that fills in the cell represents the type of variant present for a specific participant in a specific gene. The heatmap below illustrates that histology, cancer stage and patient survival status, each column represents a different participant. “Undiff” refers to undifferentiated histology. The graph to the left shows the percentage of participants who have a rare variant in a gene, relative to all participants with variants, while the bar plot above the main graph represents the variant burden for each participant
