In the published article, Fig. 2C appeared incorrectly. The “r=0.65” should be changed to “r=–0.65.” And Fig. 5C also appeared incorrectly. The “r=0.59” should be changed to “r=–0.59.” In addition, Supplemental Fig. S1B and S1C appeared incorrectly. The “Before” and “After” should be switched.

The corrected figures are shown below.

Prominent gut microbiota at the species level before and after bariatric surgery and correlation with body mass index (BMI). (A) Linear discriminant analysis (LDA) effect size before and after bariatric surgery (threshold 3.6). (B) Correlation between Ruminococcus gnavus and Blautia obeum wexlerae and BMI. (C) Correlation between Bacteroides dorei vulgatus, Bacteroides uniformis, Bacteroides nordii and Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron and BMI.

We would like to apologize for any inconvenience or misunderstanding.
