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!


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". 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?

The Lukewarm Bottle of Milk And The Vader Retro Satanas Theory

The Lukewarm Bottle of Milk And The Vader Retro Satanas Theory
But wait... Isn't the cow the mother?...

And what is that milk-like bottle?

Er... a protesting milk bottle? Maybe the milk is Chinese and the cow Japanese?

Plenty of scandals in China where baby milk powder  is involved... 

This is a bottle of lukewarm milk I guess... 

So if the cow's the mother, then who's the father??...

MAY THE MILK BE WITH YOU... 

 This is the birthday present I got from my brother... Thanks, bro!... Enjoy your stay in France...
