Figure 6 (Segregation of reciprocal translocations) contains a factual error in that the outcomes of ‘adjacent 1’ and ‘adjacent 2’ segregation paths are swapped. During ‘adjacent 1’ segregation, chromosomes 1 and 3, and chromosomes 2 and 4 are segregated into separate gametes. ‘Adjacent 2’ segregation leads to the formation of gametes containing chromosomes 1 and 2, and 3 and 4. The correct version of the figure is presented here.
