  1. Do one of the following to open tumor mutational burden analysis results:



    Visualize analysis results from an individual sample or from multiple samples simultaneously from the Analyses table.

    In the Analyses table, select an individual sample result row, or select the checkbox next to each sample result that you want to visualize simultaneously, then click Visualize. Alternatively, click Actions > Visualize .

    In the Analyses table, click a sample result hyperlink in the Analysis column to open the Analysis Results, then click Visualize.

  2. Scroll down to view graphical representations of the analysis results and QC metrics, and download additional files.

    Note: Multiple sample results are listed sequentially.
