DNA Music | Ben Ehrlich

The personal genomics lab 23andme, which boasts the largest DNA database in the world and featured on PBS’ special series Finding Your Roots, has recently created a new music lab that lets customers listen to their genes — literally. Mark Ackerly, who studied at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, developed an algorithm that converts genetic data into an unique melody. Customers can then choose musical instruments to enliven their personal melody. 23andme offers ongoing, subscription-free access to all of their services (including ancestry composition, genetic relatives, family tree, paternal lineages, and Neanderthal percentages) for $299.
