(a) Relative mutant allele frequency compared to maximum mutant allele frequency (corrected for copy-number) from the case presented in Fig. 5. The algorithm described in Online Methods was applied to predict clonality of the six mutational alleles. Based on the distribution of percentage of Max-maf (corrected for copy number gain, the cut-off of < 0.2 was defined as subclonal, >=0.2 as clonal. (b) Clonal/subclonal calls based on cfDNA analysis were compared to whole exome sequencing of tumor samples (Fig. 5a). This method demonstrated 100% sensitivity and specificity when comparing cfDNA clonality assessments to tumor clonality assessments for the 6 mutant alleles analyzed.
