By Bertrand Jordan

« Ce livre présente les approches nouvelles de l. a. génétique médicale, dont différents elements font souvent l’actualité. J’ai choisi d’évoquer les thèmes majeurs et très actuels de cette nouvelle “médecine génomique” à partir des recherches sur les déterminants génétiques de cette grave affection qu’est l’autisme. Ces travaux ont récemment donné lieu à des péripéties médiatiques et juridiques auxquelles j’ai été personnellement mêlé.

« Le récit fait découvrir les rapports entre le monde de los angeles recherche en génétique médicale et celui des entreprises de biotechnologie avec leurs impératifs particuliers. Il montre, à travers le marché des checks de l’autisme, les interférences entre le savoir, le enterprise et l’institution judiciaire. Cette histoire alterne avec des chapitres faisant le element sur les théories de l’autisme et les vives polémiques scientifiques qui y sont associées. J’y discute les difficultés de l. a. génétique psychiatrique, et, plus généralement, les avancées et limites des functions thérapeutiques de l’exploration du génome. »
