Figure 2

Intra-tumor heterogeneity in four germline tumors. (A,B) Heatmaps show the regional distribution of all non-silent mutations; presence (blue) or absence (grey) of each mutation is indicated for every tumor region in tumors from the right (A) and left kidneys (B). Whole exome sequencing defines four distinct tumors. In each, tumor evolution is linear rather than branched.
