Fig. 1

The illustration of how the heterogeneity of aneuploidy impacts the emergent properties of cellular populations. Since there is no direct correlation from individual agents to the emergent properties, the final properties are based on the collective emergence of all agents. Circles represent cells with normal karyotypes, triangles represent cells with non-clonal aneuploidy, and arrows represent pathways among agents. These variable properties are the potential basis for cancer evolution (modified from reference [19])
