Bangkok, July 16 (AFP): A Thai scientist has turned the DNA of animals, organisms and plants into an unusual new soundtrack by translating the genetic code into musical notes.
“Every living thing on earth — humans, animals and plants — is made up of chains of four chemical codes,” said Sirisak Thepakham, a researcher at the National Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology.
“I translated the code to musical tones.”
Sirisak paired the letters A, T, G and C representing the four types of DNA chemicals with the la, si, do and so of the tonal scale. Combinations of the letters were used to construct the remaining notes.
