News of the Week: “Joint German-Israeli research center planned” (13 January, p. 150). Both the print version and the earlier online-only ScienceInsider version of this article incorrectly identified the Minerva Foundation as the funding source for the new center. The new center will be jointly funded by the Max Planck Society and the Weizmann Institute. Also, Steve Weiner, director of the Kimmel Center for Archaeological Science, is a biologist, not an archaeologist.

GE Prize Essay: “Zoom” by E. L. Aiden (2 December 2011, p. 1222). An editorial error was introduced during production. On p. 1222, the zoom for the interior of a proton was given as “10 to 16 m.” The correct number is 10−16 m. The number has been corrected in the HTML version online.

Reports: “A composite of multiple signals distinguishes causal variants in regions of positive selection” by S. R. Grossman et al. (12 February 2010, p. 883). The surname of the second author was spelled incorrectly; the correct spelling is Shlyakhter. The name has been corrected in the HTML version online.
