Table 3 Estimation of the mixture proportion (m) in the bladder and the prostate groups

From: A Hidden Markov Model to estimate population mixture and allelic copy-numbers in cancers using Affymetrix SNP arrays

    M < 1
Cancer type Number of samples Number of samples with m = 1 Average Stdev
Bladder 18 12 0.793 0.193
Prostate 25 21 0.93 0.055
  1. For all bladder and prostate tumour samples, the mixture proportion was estimated. The averages and standard deviations are only calculated for the tumour samples whose estimates of mixture proportion, m, were not 1 (100% cancer cells).
