MUTATION, French law. This term is synonymous with change, and is particularly applied to designate the change which takes place in the property of a thing in its transmission from one person to another; permutation therefore happens when, the owner of the thing sells, exchanges or gives it. It is nearly synonymous with transfer. (q.v.) Merl. Repert. h.t.

cab-tc/ZAF/04/Avt-E040061 strain in genotype group 1c has nonsynonymous SNVs at 3 of the 7 loci (K357N in VP2 and V81A and Q169R in VP6) but a VP5-encoding gene apparently derived by reassortment from a virus resembling 4/Lab/ZAF/98/OBP-116, such that the SNVs in the VP5 of this strain were also not considered to be mutationally derived.
These findings demonstrate that for breast cancer (and likely for the majority of cancers) no 2 tumors are mutationally identical and that stratifying tumors by mutational class is far more complex than previously thought.
The disappointing result resembles the classic definition of interesting failure, writ mutationally large.
