Table 1 Summary of the different definitions of positive (driver variants) and negative (passenger variants) samples used in the construction of cancer driver variant predictors data sets

From: Current cancer driver variant predictors learn to recognize driver genes instead of functional variants

Negative samples   Positive samples  
Neutral germline variants NEUT Experimentally verified cancer drivers EXPDRV
Deleterious germline variants DEL Recurrent variants in cancer samples REC
Both DEL and NEUT ALL   
Non-recurrent variants in cancer samples NONREC   
Synthetically generated passenger mutation SYNTH
