colorectal cancer
Patients who were identified by standard procedures to suffer with colorectal cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Gut microbiota structure and function difference between colorectal cancer, precancer and healthy controls [ Time Frame: average of 5 years ]
    The results were based on the 16S rRNA metagenomic sequencing.
