DNA consists of
4 kinds of deoxynucleotides.
It carries information of life.
DNA, a highly ordered biological macromolecule which has been studied clearly, can also be used to store artificial information. Based on the basic principle of computer storage and synthetic biology, songs, pictures and other information can be stored in DNA.
Life system optimizes itself through evolution. The essence of this process is that information in DNA experiences mutation and selection.
The 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to scientists devoted to genome editing. Genome editing can change the information stored in artificial DNA sequence, achieving the goal of directed or random evolution.
In our project, music information is compiled into sequences according to certain rules, stored in plasmid DNA, introduced into E.coli and operated by genome editing to realize the evolution of music.
In addition, we visualized music with some coding algorithm to show the amazing artistic effect.
