Table 3 Single-cell sequencing-based classification versus morphologic classification

From: Tracing the origin of disseminated tumor cells in breast cancer using single-cell sequencing

  Morphologic classification
TC Uncertain PHC HC Total
Sequencing-based classification DTC 10 - - 1 11
AU 3 3 (+1) 7 (+1) 1 (+2) 14 (+4)
N 6 5 5 - 16
Doublets 5a 3a 1a 1 (+2) 10a (+2)

  1. aSome of these doublets contain a DTC (see also Additional file 1: Figures S7 and S8 and Additional file 2: Table S6). Control cells are counted between brackets. DTC disseminated tumor cell, AU aberrant cell of unknown origin, N normal cell, TC tumor cell, Uncertain uncertain cell, PHC probable hematopoietic cell, HC hematopoietic cell.
