Electromagnetic signals are produced by aqueous nanostructures derived from bacterial DNA sequences

Interdiscip Sci. 2009 Jun;1(2):81-90. doi: 10.1007/s12539-009-0036-7. Epub 2009 Mar 4.


A novel property of DNA is described: the capacity of some bacterial DNA sequences to induce electromagnetic waves at high aqueous dilutions. It appears to be a resonance phenomenon triggered by the ambient electromagnetic background of very low frequency waves. The genomic DNA of most pathogenic bacteria contains sequences which are able to generate such signals. This opens the way to the development of highly sensitive detection system for chronic bacterial infections in human and animal diseases.
