Music Note DNA

Is there music in your blood? Well if you listen close enough there might be.

Recently I came across a really cool project by Brooklyn resident Greg Lukianoff called the Genetic Music Project.

The Genetic Music Project takes the A’s, G’s, C’s and T’s of your genetic makeup and converts them into musical notes to create a unique song from your DNA.

The basic premise involves taking small snippets of genetic code and assigning each nucleotide a musical note to create interesting little songs.

Because genetic sequences are so huge, the songs created so far are all based on small sections of genetic code, called genetic markers, that represent certain genetic traits or disorders such as Baldness, Schizophrenia and Alcohol Dependence.

The one that speaks to me the most is my nighttime nemesis — Restless Leg Syndrome.
