Scientific MOOCs follower. Author of Airpocalypse, a techno-medical thriller (Out Summer 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...

Atoms have electrons they can share (share a pair of electrons is a covalent bond, which is an extremely stable bond). How many bonds our 6 favorite atoms can engage in? Hydrogen: 1; Carbon: 4; Nitrogen: usually 3 but you can actually get 4; Phospohorus: 5; Sulfur: 6; Oxygen: 2.

We are also trace quantities of ions: Calcium (Ca), Chloride (Cl), Potassium (K), Sodium (Na), Magnesium (Mg), Manganese (Mn) + teeny, teeny weeny bits of Selenium (Se).
