Fig. 3

Presence of somatic SNVs in adjacent non-neoplastic tissues as the first indication of contamination. Distribution of somatic SNVs’ allele fractions (VAF) in WES data of the blood and four types of adjacent non-neoplastic tissues, classified by four categories: zero (no mutant reads detected), less than one percent, one to five percent, and greater than five percent. Y axis values represent the numbers of SNVs in each category
