  1. TSCE two-stage clonal expansion model, TSCE/P TSCE period; TSCE/C, TSCE cohort; TSCE-P-C, TSCE period-cohort
  2. a -2 × log(likelihood) + 2 × number of estimated parameters
  3. b Relative values that weight the goodness of fit of the model to empirical data. The lower the AIC, the better the model fit
