The Low-Coste Innovation Blog welcomes YOU


Welcome to the digital era of biology (and to this modest blog I started in early 2005).

To cure many diseases, like cancer or cystic fibrosis, we will need to target genes (mutations, for ex.), not organs! I am convinced that the future of replacement medicine (organ transplant) is genomics (the science of the human genome). In 10 years we will be replacing (modifying) genes; not organs!


Anticipating the $100 genome era and the P4™ medicine revolution. P4 Medicine (Predictive, Personalized, Preventive, & Participatory): Catalyzing a Revolution from Reactive to Proactive Medicine.


After low-cost airlines (Ryanair, Easyjet ...) comes "low-cost" participatory medicine. Some of my readers have recently christened this long-lasting, clumsy attempt at e-writing of mine "THE LOW-COSTE INNOVATION BLOG". My name's Catherine Coste. I've earned myself two MIT digital diplomas: 7.00x and 7QBWx. Instructor: Eric Lander PhD.

My motto: Go Where You Are Celebrated, Not Where You Are Tolerated.

I love Genomics. Would you rather donate your data, or... your vital organs?

Bienvenue dans le monde merveilleux de la médecine quantitative !

Génome, microbiome, métabolome, késako ?? Jamais entendu parler de ces termes. Pourtant, la médecine de demain, celle qui se prépare de par le monde, croise deux compétences qui défient les frontières des pays : le numérique et la biologie. L'union des deux donne naissance à la médecine quantitative, qui d'après la NASA est "la technologie du 21ème siècle". Récemment diplômée du MIT en Génétique & Big Data et de la Sorbonne en sciences humaines, je suis passionnée par ce projet : expliquer la science au grand public.

The one thing you need to know about me: passionate about science and society, working on a writing project: genomic entertainment. From the Broad Institute to Broadway? I'm talking about the human genome project here -- so YES: I'm talking about YOUR own genome...

Biology goes digital and it's the most important technology in the 21rst century!






Biology goes digital. Now we can flip that around: zeros and ones can make biological stuff... Coming up with situations where "a software builds its own hardware!"

"the illusion that science can provide some objective answer that applies to everyone...is a special danger"

Also for organ "donation"...

Your genome on your iPhone









Eric Topol MD: "You’ll be able to use your phone to image parts of your body. So let’s say you’re worried about your heart. You can just take your phone, put it on your chest and it will take pictures of your heart and an ultrasound. Or if you want to do your own breast screen, instead of a mammogram, you could use your phone to do an ultrasound of your breast – which is much more sensitive than a mammogram."
