The First Release version of the Research Article “Loci associated with skin pigmentation identified in African populations” (17 November, p. eaan8433), published on 12 October 2017, contained some errors. The version published on 17 November incorporates subsequent proof corrections and author corrections. The text and Figs. 1A and 2 were updated to reflect a revision to the melanin index (MI) formula used to analyze the data, which was changed from MI = 100 × log10[1/(x/100)] to MI = 100 × log10[1/(x/255)], where x is the value for red reflectance. Thus, the MI values shift proportionally. All results in the paper remain unchanged; the mistakes were not in the data files themselves nor in the rest of the results derived in the paper. In addition, the summary page that appeared in print on page 887 has now been updated to reflect the revisions to Fig. 1.
