Correction to: Plant Cell Reports (2019) 38:1439–1448

In Material and Methods, we erroneously named the sweetpotato variety which was used as donor plant “Taizhong-6” (China national number 2013003). The variety was “Ayamurasaki”.

The correct sentence is: “Sweetpotato variety “Ayamurasaki” was used as a donor parent to generate transgenic sweetpotatoes.” The authors apologize for the error.
