[…] differences were identified between mbl/cll samples and pmn samples with the former group exhibiting mainly c>t mutations at npcpg trinucleotides (p<0.05 for ultra-stable cll and hc-mbl)., the mutationalpatterns package was used to delineate the mutational signatures in our cohort. mutational patterns identified in the mbl/cll samples resembled those reported by puente et al.; this finding […]

[…] to prevent overloading of the assay., all analyses of base substitutions (supplementary fig. ) and mutational signatures (fig.  and supplementary figs.  and ) were carried out using the r-package mutationalpatterns, following the creators’ instructions. in brief, base substitution patterns of the somatic mutations detected in sccs were analyzed and visualized with mutationalpatterns using […]

[…] model. the copy number alterations (cnas) identified using exome-sequencing data were concordant to those in the same samples by using affymetrix snp array. loh events were derived using varscan2. mutationalpatterns ( was used to infer the contribution of published mutational signatures., genome-wide copy number profiles of two wild-type samples (day 23 and day […]
