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...

This Is Genomic Entertainment (cont'd)

After a meeting with the film production company i work with in Taiwan, we decided i would try some kind of "genomic entertainment" on twitter, around the idea of Sheldon Cooper (US TV show "Big Bang Theory") speaking about the "Three Body Trilogy" by Chinese sci-fi author Cixin Liu. Building bridges between cultures (and continents), although i must confess i'm not quite sure where this is going ;-) This is the sequel to my blog post: Migrating My Bank To My Genome, and What Happened On The Way and This Is Genomic Entertainment. BTW, will be spending lots of time in various countries in Asia between September 2017 and February 2018, including Japan and Taiwan.
