Figure 5

Correlation analysis based on clustering programs comparing the relatedness of the most frequently chromosomal imbalances identified in this study (frequency at least > 20%). Chromosomal regions representative of individual hot sports were selected as described in the material and methods. Distances are presented according to the φ 4 point correlation coefficient. Green boxes underline clusters including chromosomal aberrations found in early (Stage I-II) and late (Stage III-IV) NPC; blue boxes define clusters enriched with aberrations specific for late stage NPC and the red box defines chromosomal imbalances identified only by the studies in which the EBV status of the tumor was reported.
