I've been looking with interest at a recent biology paper claiming that DNA molecules give off electromagnetic signals which can cause the same types of molecules to be reconstructed at a remote location. The Slashdot crowd seems to think the idea is pretty ridiculous, and I'm inclined to agree, but I still think it's worth digging into some of the physics they cite.
A large part of the theoretical argument in the paper relies on what they call coherence domains. As far as I can tell, they're talking about a relatively large region of liquid (in this case water) in which all the molecules are in resonance with an oscillating electromagnetic field which is confined by the boundary of the region itself. I don't think I really grok that description, and a Google search for further information turned up nothing relevant. I'd like to see some of the math that backs this up. So can anyone provide a more mathematical explanation of how these coherence domains are able to exist?
(I'm assuming the whole idea is not totally bogus :-P)
