We sequenced the exomes of five metastatic tumors and healthy kidney tissue from a mCRPC index case to identify lesions associated with disease progression and metastasis. The majority of somatic nonsynonymous variants were present in all metastases and only a subset was observed in the primary tumor. Somatic variants in individual tumors permitted us to infer a chronology for the clonal spread of disease based on sequential accrual of lesions. TET2 alteration or loss may define a subset of mCRPC.
