23andMe makes music from your DNA

Most people don’t go around all day and wonder what secrets might be hidden in their genes. Personal genomics startup 23andMe is in the business of getting people curious enough to look into it, though. Its latest persuasion technique comes in the form of a song — the song of you, in a way. The company says it can now create a piece of music from your genetic code.

This isn’t an entirely new idea — DNA has been used as the inspiration for music in the past. The difference with 23andMe’s system is that it’s almost entirely automated. The pitch, key, and rhythm of the tune are all algorithmically derived from your personal genetic code.
