Abstract: 
A series of clonal expansions are thought to underlie the progression of Barrett's oesophagus (BE) to oesophageal adenocarcinoma (OAC). Each expansion carries with it somatic driver mutation (s) fixing it within a larger population and therefore increasing the likelihood of acquiring a second mutation. However, the precise order in which somatic variants occur remains unknown.
