Music: It's in the Genes

Translating genetic code to musical notes? It's been tried before, and I've seen research articles about it but I've never actually heard the results.

This site from UCLA researchers describes their method and has some MIDI examples.

The truly enthralled can even email their own genetic sequences and they'll convert it to music for you!

Y'know, I'm (allegedly - the lack of gigs lately makes me wonder) a professional musician and a composer. I've always said I've got music in my DNA; I just meant metaphorically, but what the heck.

You do indeed have music in your DNA, and now you can have DNA in your music, too.
