Auditory display of genome data: Human chromosome 21
The motivation for this paper is to systematically explore the efficacy of mapping data to sound parameters with the specific aim of sonifying statistical trends and hearing the `gist'  of the data. In this paper, we consider the task of searching through a gene sequence of the human chromosome 21 for CpG islands and type of gene evidence. Musical intervals and rhythm is proposed for detecting CpG islands and musical timber is used for representing the gene evidence. We extract human genome data from the NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information)  database and use list processing and synthesis capabilities of CLM .
