  1. The table only includes aberrations that spanned more than 10 probes. Known chromosomal imbalances in HCC are marked in bold. Common aberrations found in both HCC (n = 22) and adjacent NT (n = 17) samples were included when they affected > 50% of cases in one tissue set and > 30% of cases in the other; they are presented in italics
  2. Chr chromosome
  3. aDifferential aberrations between HCC and NT samples were considered statistically significant when P < 0.05 in differential aberration analysis
  4. bThe interval size is expressed as the total number of probes that spanned the aberration interval
