Music in your genes

Here's an interesting combination of art and science: gene2music. Hear the rhythm of the gene sequence for Huntington's disease, or the song that allows E. coli to break through a bacterial membrane. Sheet music is also provided.

For those with a little musical knowledge, you can read a description of how it's done.

Thanks to Leslie Cannold for drawing my attention to this.
