Data represents HNSCC mutations reported by Stransky N. et al, and Agrawal et al supplemented by UniProt database ( Only missense and nonsense mutations along with frame shift deletions and splice site SNP of histones and histones associated modifiers were included. Synonymous mutations were excluded.
