Coolest Science/Music Geek Thing EVER.

UCLA molecular biologists have turned protein sequences into original compositions of classical music.

They assigned chord sequences to various amino acids, and then “mapped” out various protein sequences, creating original music as a result.

You can hear example tracks here at one of the faculty’s websites.

Heh. They’re in MIDI format, which means I could import them into my composition software, change the instrument designations, and then add effects, new instruments, etc. Maybe I should do a “remix” of hemoglobin glycera, for example….
