  1. In the top of the table, "1", "2", "3" and "4" are related to the number of total subpopulations. "Homogeneity" shows the number of the samples that contain total 1 or 2 subpopulations. "Heterogeneity" displays the number of the samples that have 3 or 4 subpopulations. The corresponding number of the subpopulations and its percentage (parentheses) in each type of tumor are presented, respectively. In breast cancers, "T", "M" and "N" are abbreviated for primary tumor, axillary lymph node metastasis and "normal" breast tissues, respectively.
