Upon publication of the original article [1] it was highlighted by the authors that a grant awarded to support the research work of the study was missed in the acknowledgements. It should also be acknowledged that the grant titled “Genotyping and Molecular Epidemiological Characteristic of Bacillus anthracis in Guizhou Province” awarded by the Program of Natural Science Foundation of Guizhou Province (Grant No. Qian Ke He J Word [2015] 2084) also contributed to the resources for this research. This has since been formally noted in this correction article.
