Tune into DNA-Radio

After creating pictures from the human DNA code and getting an 
incredible amount of positive response, the step to convert the data to 
audio came into our mind quite fast. After some thinking and lots of 
tests, we are converting the whole human genome to audio and streaming 
them now to the Internet, 24/7. The idea is quite simple, every base is 
read and broadcasted instead converting it to a color. With DNA-Radio we 
don't visualize the chromosome, we sonify it and have now completed a 
full audio-visual DNA representation of human chromosomes.

It's like radio, everybody listening hears the same code at the same 
time, the audio never gets repeated and when we have aired all 
chromosomes, this project is over. Well, after doing some calculation we 
figured out that this will take quite a while. When we read three 
characters a second, it will take about 23.5 years or so until all code 
has been distributed over the internet.

Currently broadcasting: Chromosome 1.
