Apparently a team of researchers at Keio University in Japan are coming up with a way of storing data in Bacteria. The linked article reads: “Character combinations can stand for specific letters and symbols — so codes in genomes can be translated, or read, to produce music, text, video and other content.”
It gets me to thinking: What if one encoded a piece of music in a bacteria’s DNA, devised a way to get it to mutate, and then extracted the information. What would it the music sound like? What if you did this a thousand times. Would the pieces start to sound the same after a while?
