Malignant colorectal neoplasms most frequently harbor alterations in TP53, APC, KRAS, PIK3CA, and SMAD4 [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Malignant Colorectal Neoplasm

APC Mutation, TP53 Mutation, TP53 Missense, TP53 c.217-c.1178 Missense, and KRAS Mutation are the most common alterations in malignant colorectal neoplasm [2].
