Mutations du mythe de l’ADN, étapes de matérialisation du gène

Abstract : In the last century, biology has established DNA as the material basis of heredity. This molecule is characterized by a dual temporality as moulding of past environments and as a mould of organisms to come. We aim at a brief description of the history of this substance as scientific and cultural object to point out key events of materialization along this trajectory but also more paradoxical moments of re-idealization. Human genomics now claim a form of exhaustivity in the characterization of the genetic material causing a rebirth of the notion of genetic determinism but in a complexified form. Interdisciplinary approaches are required to analyze the social and political consequences of this social intrusion of genomics via private GAFA-related biotech firms or public programs in medicine and academic sociology and psychology.
