    ..In this homogenous cohort of TNBCs few recurrent mutations were found. However, PIK3CA mutations were associated with BRCA proficiency, which can have clinical consequences in the near future. ..

    ..In addition, we find that the degree of substrain variation is highly variable between strains, which is of importance for the correct interpretation of experimental data from different labs. ..

    ..Furthermore, we show that experiments can be multiplexed and easily scaled for the identification of multiple individual mutants in a single sequencing run. ..

    ..The ability to obtain comprehensive and rapid mutational overviews is key for improving the efficiency of cancer patient care through tailoring treatments based on the genetic characteristics of individual tumors. ..

    ..We propose that the same genomic positions are prone to genomic rearrangements in germline and soma but that timing and context of breakage determines whether developmental defects or cancer are promoted. ..
