Much to the chagrin of some, a Nobel-winning scientist insists that DNA can effectively teleport itself to nearby cells.
In many sci-fi stories, teleportation is achieved by digitizing the human body and sending it, at lightspeed, somewhere else to be re-assembled. According to Luc Montagnier, DNA already does this.
Rousing the ire of many chemists, Montagnier is shopping a paper around for publication which essentially states that DNA emits a weak electromagnetic field which can imprint the information contained in the molecule via a bunch of quantum stuff which I'm just going to call "magic". Using this "magic", the DNA imprints its genetic information in nearby water strong enough that the enzymes in cells responsible for copying DNA mistake it for being real DNA. They then go about their business of copying this ghost-DNA, producing a real copy of the teleported genetic information.
