  1. Shown are the allele frequencies in primary GISTs (FFPE) with and without emerging secondary mutation in the recurrent tumours in comparison to the limit of detection. The positions of the mutations p.V654A, p.N680K, p.D820E, p.N822Y were analysed with each assay.
  2. [%]: Allele frequency in percent.
  3. (): Falsely higher allele frequency due to read bias in one run.
