Richarda Voer and colleagues report a study on novel candidate genes for colorectal cancer (CRC) at an early age in life. They applied a strategy for seraching genes with multiple rare (minor allele frequency <0.001) variants in cases but not in controls with a potentially damaging effect. They identified LRP6  and  PTPN12  as novel candidate genes for CRC susceptibility.
