"Now, with our Sanger quality scores..."

"Now, with our Sanger quality scores converted to PHRED quality scores, we can apply the following formula to convert quality scores to the estimated probability the base is correct: P = 10-Q/10 ..." According to "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phred_quality_score", the probability is logarithmically related to the Phred Quality Score for a base calling error. So shouldn't the sentence in the paragraph be: "we can apply the following formula to convert quality scores to the estimated probability the base is incorrect:"?

Note from the Author or Editor:
Yes, this should read "incorrect".
