Led by the engineer and musician Markus Buehler, the MIT team transformed the proteins of COVID-19 into music.
For in-depth analysis, scientists translated the protein spikes of the virus into a symphony.
According to the researchers, protein consists of several levels of structural organization. The team from MIT transposed the structure of the protein into notes and created a melody, which represents the physical protein structure.
Markus Buehler claims this method can determine why SARS-Cov-2 is dangerous to humans, and may also help to develop an effective drug therapy.
