About this Research Topic
Gastrointestinal cancer is among the most common cancer types, based on the Cancer Genome Atlas. GI cancers are within the most frequent malignancy, with almost 150.000 new cases in 2020. On one hand a big number of researches are focused on the diagnosis, new diagnostic approaches in upper and lower gastrointestinal tract cancers. On the other hand in the last 10 years several papers had been published about the possible therapeutic targets, pointing to precision and personalized medicine.
With this collection of articles we would like to refresh the whole view of gastrointestinal cancer, regarding new molecular targets for diagnostics, individualized treatment for better survival. We welcome the submission of Review, Original research covering, but not limited for the following topics:
1. Whole genome sequencing in GI cancers
2. Whole exome sequencing in GI cancers
3. Emerging therapeutic targets in GI cancers
4. Precision and individualized medicine of GI cancers
5. Unanswerd questions of GI cancers
Keywords: Gastrointestinal cancer, Novel molecular biomarkers, WGS and WES, Individualized therapy, Precision medicine
