This is very interesting, and groundbreaking on many levels if true. However I'm skeptical myself, and the article didn't do a good job explaining the experiment. Their thesis ("this suggests DNA emits its own electromagnetic signals that imprint the DNA’s structure on other molecules like water") doesn't explain how pure water, which doesn't contain carbon atoms, can form DNA molecules, whose bases contain carbon. We'll see how this unfolds.
