If this summer’s posting became a little infrequent, part of the blame lies with computational research I’ve been working on, regarding the systems biology of chromosomal translocations and the ensuing chimeric proteins at the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge.

Programming instrumental music from scratch

I recently posted about automatically making music. The algorithm that I made pulled out interesting sequences of music from existing songs and remixed them. While this worked reasonably well, it also didn’t have full control over the basics of the music; it wasn’t actually specifying which instruments to use, or what notes to play. Maybe I’m being...

How to really do an analysis in R (part 1, data manipulation)
