We apologize for the errors that occurred in the Summary of both the online and print versions of this paper. The corrections are detailed below.

In line 1 of the Summary, Schizosaccaromyces pombe is incorrectly referred to as `Saccharomyces pombe'. Correct version: Fission yeast (Schizosaccaromyces pombe) centromere DNA is organized in a central core region flanked on either side by a region of outer repeat (otr) sequences.

In line 29 of the Summary, the word `of' is missing. Correct version: The declustering of centromeres in mis6 cells correlated with loss of the Ndc80 kinetochore marker protein from the centromeres.

In line 35 of the Summary, mis-segregation has been incorrectly changed to `misaggregation'. Correct version: Time-lapse microscopy of live mis6 and nuf2-1 mutant cells in mitosis showed similar severe mis-segregation phenotypes whereas the rik1 mutants showed a mild cohesion defect.
