On the twentieth anniversary of the annual question edge.org (the most intelligent website in the world, according to The Guardian), John Brockman launched the 2017 question: What scientific term or concept ought to be more widely known?
The participation of Dr. Andrés Roemer stands out due to his writing “Transcriptome”, which could be the key that will allow us to conquer our genetic destiny.
While answering Roemer explains, “the information of each living being is encoded in our DNA, but beyond it the way in how it is re-expressed, through our RNA a path to a prosperous future will be unlocked in terms of aging prevention, brain function, cancer eradication, hepatitis B, HIV and even high cholesterol.”
In addition, he emphasizes that our abilities, skills, needs and even predisposition to diseases are largely determined by our genes and, despite all the technological progress, their research is still in its early stages. However, studying them shows a huge potential to improve the diagnosis, treatment and cure of various diseases, discovering “the tricks that the human genome has up its sleeve.”
In an agile and intelligent way, Andrés Roemer emphasizes in his essay “The Transcriptome” that “transcriptome”, in contrast to the genome characterized by its stability, is constantly changing and can reflect in real time, at a molecular level, a person’s physiology depending on several factors, including the stage of development and environmental conditions.
Brockman points out on his portal that “science is the most reliable way of gaining knowledge about anything, whether it be the human spirit, the role of the great personalities of history, or the DNA structure,” in that way, replying to the annual question at edge.org, brings together over 200 brilliant minds such as Richard Dawkins, Steven Pinker, Lisa Randall, Jared Diamond, Andrés Roemer, Daniel C. Dennett, Adam Alter, Alison Gopnik, Donald D. Hoffman, among others.
