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!

Anticipating the $100 genome era and the P4™ medicine revolution. P4 Medicine (Predictive, Personalized, Preventive, & Participatory): Catalyzing a Revolution from Reactive to Proactive Medicine.

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...

The Bismillah Of DNA 

Jungle Genomic Book
3 billion base pages 
Of As, Ts, Cs and Gs 
Not informative.
3 billion phenotypes:
Holy Grail
Big Pharma 
One Blockbuster.
New tool
For evolution
In ancestral species:
3 billion phenotypes:
Holy Grail.
Big Pharma 
One Blockbuster.
Genes replicating,
Travelling without moving.

At the beginning 
Of life:
No Copyright Infringement
Nucleic acid
Replicating machines,
Wreaking havoc. 
3 billion phenotypes:
Holy Grail.
Big Pharma 
One Blockbuster.

At the beginning
Of life:
RNA Interference Madness.
The cop
Protecting « Purple » 
Killing « Elprup ».

Mirror images:
Vade retro,
Omnia Vanitas 
3 billion phenotypes:
Holy Grail.
Big Pharma 
One Blockbuster.

Evolution with cop:
Cutting through proteins.
Doctor's stethoscope, 
Out of Patient's scope,
Has fallen into disuse.
Blockchain and Smartphone, 
Playing Doctor on 

I am a Uighur
Looking for the Bismillah of DNA
I am looking for the Bismillah
The Sunnah of Biology

They say
DNA makes RNA makes Protein
The Sunnah the better
The Sunnah you understand
The better.

Looking for the Bismillah of DNA
I found viruses
RNA viruses
Their genomes are made of RNA
But they eventually
Make a copy
A DNA copy
Of their RNA genome
And integrate it
Into the host 

Looking for the Bismillah of DNA
The Sunnah of biology
I discovered 
This is the first time 
The central dogma
Ever went backwards.

The Bismillah of DNA
Is not as dogmatic
As we originally thought -
Looking for the Sunnah of Biology
I ended up with a Nobel
