Genetics and music merged into a powerful diagnostic tool which will significantly improve the detection of diseases, writes The Daily Mail. And in music, and in the genes there are repetitions and a finite number of options (four base pairs in the genes and twelve notes in music).

Based on this knowledge, the scientists turned the protein structure in the melody and analyzed them by ear. According to experts, in such melodies will be easier to identify abnormalities in the proteins. This approach is a transformation of data about proteins in the melody is called “conficate”.

Importantly, the approach is simple and straightforward. In the experiment, the resulting melodies have been lost together with visual information (tables, research results). Most listeners were able to compare the information. Developers of the technique believe that it will be able to listen to entire genomes and of individual molecules.
