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?

Coursera MOOC "Epigenetic Control of Gene Expression" Univ of Melbourne starting on April 28th

https://www.coursera.org/course/epigenetics

On epigenetics: "The Epigenetic Control of Gene Expression course will start on the 28th of April, 2014. In case you'd like to brush up a little on genetics before we start, and you haven't had a chance to take another one of the genetics MOOCs available, you could take a look at this resource."

"You may also like to watch some short animations that cover transcription and translation, and one which specifically goes into epigenetics and X chromosome inactivation, which we'll cover in the course."
