Molecular biomarkers have become one of the cornerstones of oncological pathology. The method of classification not only directly affects the manner in which patients are diagnosed and treated, but also guide the development of drugs and of artificial intelligence tools. This work aims to organize and update gastrointestinal molecular biomarkers in order to produce an easy-to-use guide for routine diagnostics. For this purpose, we have extracted and re-organized the molecular information of epithelial neoplasms included in the new “WHO Classification of Tumours of the Digestive System” book (5th Edition 2019).
