  1. Abbreviations: HR hazard rate ratios, CI confidence interval, MSI-H microsatellite instability-high, MSS/MSI-L microsatellite stable/microsatellite instability-low
  2. aEvents are defined as deaths for overall survival and death, recurrence, or metastasis (whichever occurred earliest) for disease-free survival
  3. bMultivariable Cox model adjusted for sex, age at diagnosis, tumor stage at diagnosis, marital status, race, reported chemoradiotherapy, MSI status, BRAF mutation status, tumor location, fruit intake, and body mass index where applicable
  4. cP for interaction is computed with Wald method testing significance of multiplicative interaction term between GC SNP rs2282679 genotype and molecular subtype
  5. dLinear trend tested by modeling the ordinal variables of genotype dose as a continuous variable
  6. eCC and AC genotypes were analyzed jointly because of limited sample size in some subgroups
  7. fNC: not calculated
  8. Those with P < 0.05 are in bold
