Unfortunately, after publication of this article [1], it was noticed that two errors were introduced during the production process. The title had the words “venomgland” incorrectly affixed together. The correct term should be “venom gland” as two separate words. Further, figure 8 (Fig. 1 here) and figure 2 (Fig. 2 here) were incorrectly exchanged. The figure legends remain in the same place. Both corrected figures with their associated legends can be found below. The original article has also been updated to correct these errors.

Relative abundance of the major toxin families in Bothrops venom gland transcriptomes. The abundance of transcripts is expressed as a percentage of the total toxin transcripts and was calculated by dividing the number of ESTs of each toxin family by the total number of toxin ESTs reported in each study. The data sources other than B. colombiensis were as follows: B. asper (Pacific) [65], B. atrox [25], B. alternatus [24], B. jararacussu [64], B. insularis [27], and B. jararaca [27]. The percentage of each toxin transcript of individual Bothrops species is shown in the Additional file 3
