Supplementary Material

Supplementary Table 1 lists variants that were present in both irradiated and control cells and were either heterozygous (≈50% frequency) or homozygous (≈50% frequency) reflecting the genetic differences (or single nucleotide polymorphism) between the hESC lines tested and reference, but not genomic changes resulted from IR exposure. Identification of all variants was performed using two parallel analysis tools, Ion Torrent Variant Caller plugin version 4.0 (Life Technologies) and NextGENe software version 2.3.4 (SoftGenetics), with appropriate visual inspection of all alignments.
