C’mon. How can music be used as a diagnostic tool other than to determine if you’re deaf? Well, hang on. Researchers from Finland’s University of Tampere, Easter Washington University and London’s Francis Crick Institute think they’ve come up with a way to use music to help identities anomalies in proteins.
The technique is called “sonification” and involves turning data about proteins into melodies. If you know what to listen for, you can hear when the tunes are off. Watch and listen.
That was easy, wasn’t it? Read more about the research at the Daily Mail.
