The genome, novel, in paper form
In 2025, Dr. Julia Demers, a leading Canadian microbiologist-infectiologist and virologist, is dispatched to the Malaysia Genome Institute in Kuala Lumpur, commonly known as the MGI, along with two colleagues and other scientists of various nationalities, to shed light on what is happening at this facility, which houses ultra-sophisticated laboratories. Rumors are circulating about a possible manipulation of the genome of SARS-CoV-2, which was responsible for COVID-19 a few years ago. Such a pathogenic germ could prove to be a real biological weapon. Did Julia take too many risks in accepting this request from her superior, director Frank Nolan of the Quebec Public Health Laboratory? Suspicious deaths soon accumulate around her. Are there any links between them? Who can Julia trust to help her in her pursuit to discover the truth? All means seem to have been implemented by a certain group of individuals, so that they can carry out a secret mission of unparalleled scope, but the latter could perhaps prove more complex than expected…
