Biology nerds have made proteins play Chopin-esque tunes

  • With the right computer program, proteins become pleasant music.
  • There are many surprising analogies between proteins, the basic building blocks of life, and musical notation.
  • These analogies can be used not only to help advance research but also to make the complexity of proteins accessible to the public.
  • We're computational biologists who believe that hearing the sound of life at the molecular level could help inspire people to learn more about biology and the computational sciences.
  • While creating music based on proteins isn't new, different musical styles and composition algorithms had yet to be explored.
