Scientific MOOCs follower. Author of Airpocalypse, a techno-medical thriller (Spring 2017)


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!

I am an early adopter of scientific MOOCs. 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? Imagine all the people sharing their data...

Welcome to Genomics England

"We are a new company set up by the Department of Health to help deliver the 100k Genome Project first announced by the Prime Minister, David Cameron, in December 2012.
This project will sequence the personal DNA code – known as a genome – of up to 100,000 patients over the next five years. This unrivalled knowledge will help doctors’ understanding, leading to better and earlier diagnosis and personalised care. Based on expert scientific advice, we will start by tackling cancer, rare diseases and infectious diseases.
The company will manage contracts for sequencing, data linkage and analysis, and set standards for patient consent."
