07/03/10: Music for your genes?
I came across this report on the Dansk Radio website. Two musicians and a scientist from Odense University Hospital, Moustapha Kassem, have created music “Soundmapping the Genes,” an aural interpretation of DNA and protein synthesis. There is a CD available and a couple of sample downloads at this page: Musik til Dine Gener. Even if the music is not to your taste, perhaps you should play it to your tubes the next time you run a PCR, or perhaps to encourage your cells to express that really difficult protein?
