The MIT team used a computer to transform a model of the structure of SARS-CoV-2 into melodies, and assigned a different note to each of the protein's amino acids.
"For me this music brings melancholy, its monotony gives me tension and as the music progresses it becomes more rhythmical and aggressive and at the end it calms down. It inspired me," Zsolt Kovacs shared.
