Retraction Note to: Mutation pattern is an influential factor on functional mutation rates in cancer

Retraction to: Cancer Cell Int (2016) 16:2 DOI 10.1186/s12935-016-0278-5

The authors are retracting this article [1] because they do not have ownership of the data they report. A formal investigation by the Institut de Biologie Intégrative de la Cellule (I2BC), Gif-Sur-Yvette, France, has found that the methods and analyses presented in Figures 1, 3 and 5 and all computer analyses were performed at the Institut de Biologie Intégrative de la Cellule (I2BC) and the data have been previously reported in [2]. All authors agree with this retraction.
