Translating proteins into music, and back: By turning molecular structures into sounds, researchers gain insight into protein structures and create new variations

In a surprising marriage of science and art, researchers have developed a system for converting the molecular structures of proteins, the basic building blocks of all living beings, into audible sound that resembles musical passages. Then, reversing the process, they can introduce some variations into the music and convert it back into new proteins never before seen in nature.
