An inconsistency in the nomenclature used for the rapidly mutating (RM) Y-chromosomal short tandem repeat (Y-STR) marker DYS449 was noted in the above paper. In this paper, the DYS449 allele nomenclature introduced by Ballantyne et al. was used, instead of that described by Redd et al. and subsequently adopted by the International RM Y-STR User Group and in the AMPFlSTR® YFiler Plus kit.
