Francisco Castillo Trigueros (PhD Candidate, Department of Music)
Josiah Zayner (PhD Candidate, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology)

Music, science, and technology have been intimately linked throughout history. Using protein nanotechnology Zayner (Biochemistry) and Castillo Trigueros (Composer) developed a musical biosensor that allows people to both hear and see the chemical reactions of a light responsive protein. A public audio-visual installation was created with this musical biosensor. The device hardware schematics and software were made freely available to the public in an Open Source manner.
