The novel coronavirus, often described as an invisible enemy, is indeed a nanoscopic object that cannot be seen. But COVID-19 can be made audible. MIT professor Markus Buehler used a computational algorithm to translate the structure and sequence of the virus’ spike protein into music.

The piece of music, which has nearly one million listens on SoundCloud, can help us learn more about how the virus works and how we can, in turn, protect ourselves from it.
