Precision Medicine will need to get out of the pharma silo that is based on symptoms


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!

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". I am an
early adopter of scientific MOOCs. My name's Catherine Coste. I've earned myself four MIT digital diplomas: 7.00x, 7.28x1, 7.28.x2 and 7QBWx. Instructor of 7.00x: Eric Lander PhD.

Upcoming books: Airpocalypse, a medical thriller (action taking place in Beijing) 2017; Jesus CRISPR Superstar, a sci-fi -- French title: La Passion du CRISPR (2018).

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

James Bond goes 2.0: Agent 007 will teach YOU about Genomics

Mind blowing indeed! James Bond goes 2.0 and as a result, Agent 007 is teaching us about genomics... for free, open to all! Thank you Billaut San...

Welcome to 7.00x, "Thee" Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Genomics, FREE AND OPEN TO ALL!

edX is a Mooc that was created by Harvard and the MIT. Want to know how this works? Then how about following the e-footsteps of Eric Lander PhD, one of the leaders of the Human Genome Project - I can't wait for him to get a Nobel Prize for that...

No fees, no selection... But you'll have to put your back into it: this MOOC is an online seminar that will require from you an 8-hour-work per week for 3 months...
