In Extenso is the supplement to In Vivo, the new ambitious health magazine published by the Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) and the media agency LargeNetwork. In Vivo’s aim is to offer an insight into the richness of Lake Geneva’s “Health Valley”, where the Lausanne University Hospital plays a prominent role, but also to bring the attention of a lay audience to the advances made by the world-leading universities and research institutions. In Extenso, supplement exclusively reserved for subscribers to the paper edition, provides an infographic look at specific health-related topics.
What is a gene? Which information is transported by it? Will the sequencing of a human genome become a routine exam in future? And if yes, which countries will be the first to legislate it? The sixth issue of In Extenso is appointing a series of crucial questions connected to the endless story of human genetics, at the same time tracing its history from the very beginnings until today and the days after tomorrow.
