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?

Music, Genomics, the "Copycat-Copyright" Dialectic and the Genome Mixing Console

 Live From The "My-Genes-Remix" Department

Wanna become the DJ of your genes? Fancy your own genes playing music at the mixing console? A digital genome mixing console, that is, playing the music (David Guetta remix?) of your genes...

Music: performing 38 songs with only 4 chords (E, B, C#m and A).
Genomics: Your DNA is one end result of 3 billion years worth of uninterrupted copying.

Can you decide which one it is? Plagiarism or Creation?

Well, maybe watching these cool videos will help you make up your mind...





DNA, the building block of life, contains the genetic code that informs so much of who we are. This code is written with four letters, each representing a different base. The four bases are adenine (A), which pairs with thymine (T), and cytosine (C), which pairs with guanine (G).

4 chords.
4 letters.

Congrats, you've just listened to the music of your genes!

Bazinga.






A Genome Mixing Console?? Cool!! Can't wait!
