Do you ever wonder what coronavirus would sound like as a song? Well, a project out of MIT has applied a computational algorithm to the protein structure of the virus and turned it into a song.
Markus Buehler joins Friday Buzz host Jonathan Zarov to discuss how he turned a deadly virus into a pleasant melody. Buehler is a researcher, professor of engineering, and department head at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
