Comments P.1331 right column bottom paragraph: "A third class of cancers comprise those in which only a very small effect of E (environmental factors) or H (heredity) has been demonstrated (ref 17), such as those of the brain, bone, or prostate. For example, a very high fraction of the driver gene mutations in prostate cancers can be attributed to R (95%, Fig. 2D and supplementary materials)."
