Random walk using part of the first chromosome of the human genome (top image is the first 10k data points, bottom is the first 20k).
- A = up, T = right, C = down, G = left
- Start in center
- If position walks offscreen, wrap around the other side
- Color is mapped from very light gray at the start to black at the end (layering the image to show time – looks surprisingly like marble)
Made as a possible level-generator.
The entire human chromosome #1, with A, C, T, and G color coded and rendered as individual pixels. Created with Processing using data via Project Gutenberg.
