MSI, Ploidy & Mutational Burden

Annotation of the cell models obtained through genomic analysis.


Microsatellite Instability

Samples were screened using the markers BAT25, BAT26, D5S346, D2S123 and D17S250 and were characterised as MSI if two or more markers showed instability.

MSI: Microsatellite Instable

MSS: Microsatellite Stable


Ploidy

Refers to the ploidy status of the cell model determined by using mean copy-number obtained from PICNIC using the Affymetrix SNP6 data.


Mutational Burden

The mutational burden or mutation rate per Mb is estimated from Whole Exome Sequencing data.
