I currently have 50 cancer samples (breast cancer). However, for 15 samples, I don't have adjacent normals. I wish to call somatic mutations. I know for 15 samples I can call variants in the tumor only mode. But how can one justify the downstream analysis? (some variant data from a normal-tumor pair and some from tumor only). Can one publish that data?
Should I create simulates normals?
