Conversion of amino-acid sequence in proteins to classical music: search for auditory patterns

We have converted genome-encoded protein sequences into musical notes to reveal auditory patterns without compromising musicality. We derived a reduced range of 13 base notes by pairing similar amino acids and distinguishing them using variations of three-note chords and codon distribution to dictate rhythm. The conversion will help make genomic coding sequences more approachable for the general public, young children, and vision-impaired scientists.

Gender Genie

Write 500 words and Gender Genie will predict your gender.

The Gender Genie uses a simplified version of an algorithm developed by Moshe Koppel, Bar-Ilan University in Israel, and Shlomo Argamon, Illinois Institute of Technology, to predict the gender of an author.

My gender prediction was wrong. I guess it’s a ‘blockquote’ side effect 🙂
