We are indebted to the individuals donating their tumor specimens as part of the Clinical Lung Cancer Genome Project initiative. Additional biospecimens for this study were obtained from the Victorian Cancer Biobank (Melbourne, Australia). The Institutional Review Board (IRB) of each participating institution approved collection and use of all specimens in this study. We also thank our colleagues at The Cancer Genome Atlas Research Network (TCGA) and A.L. Kung for invaluable discussion and many helpful comments.
