If coronavirus were music, what would it sound like?

Soothing, beautiful, scary and sad is how the melodies created from the virus using AI are described

From tinkling harmonies as the virus disarms cells to clashing and stormy notes as it replicates, US researchers have translated the novel coronavirus' spiked protein structure to music in an effort to better understand the pathogen.

A team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology used artificial intelligence to transform a model of the protein structure of SARS-CoV-2 into interwoven melodies in a classical musical composition.

They assigned each amino acid — the building blocks
