Currently I'm studying an article on TERT promoter mutations in human melanoma and find myself unfamiliar with included denotations,I would appreciate it if someone could explain to me what C228T in the sentence below means.

Two tumors with a C228T transition also contained an adjacent C>T transition (at position chr5, 1,295,229), which is indicative of a dinucleotide CC>TT transition

C228T is a mutation from Citosin to Thymin at the 228th basepair.

Maybe this website helps? Nomenclature for the description of mutations and other sequence variations I see they write the mutation different (following their format it would be 228C>T), but the general idea is the same.
