  1. The 248 tumor samples are stratified according to glioma type. The figures in the individual columns illustrate the numbers of samples from each tumor type analysed for the respective molecular biomarker. Note that not all cases were investigated for all biomarkers by ddPCR but that cases were selected for the establishment and validation of the individual assays. Numbers in brackets: first number, cases with alteration; second number, cases without alteration; *third number, cases with non-informative SNPs. –, not analysed
