For those that don't read popbitch (or, apparently, CNN), there's a guy who has translated a sequence of amino acids which code for one of the surface proteins in Swineflu into a piece of music.

The concept is A+++, even if the actual piece of music is a bit not good, really.

See, this is what I get for not looking carefully. I thought this was on your personal journal :)

Ouups.

Why don't you try it with your own favourite sequence?

www.aber.ac.uk/~phiwww/pm/ This is for DNA, though

Some more links

I need to try it with the gene I am working on at the moment. It's 60 kb, so it'll be a long piece :)

Yes, I'm sure that was an option in the software they used in my lab back in the days when GenBank was shipped to you on floppies. 5 1/2 inch floppies. (I arrived at about the same time as the internet and never learnt to use it.)
