The method of anomalous viscosity time dependence (AVTD) was used to study the influence of millimeter electromagnetic radiation on the genome conformational state (GCS) of E. coli cells with different lengths of the bacterial chromosme.
The length of the chromosme was changed by inserting DNA of phages. If DNA is the target of resonance interaction between millimeter waves and cells, the increase in length (mass) of chromosome DNA should decrease the resonance frequency.

In the 41.28-41.37 GHz and 51.73-51.79 GHz ranges the resonance effect of low-intensity electromagnetic radiation (EMR) on the genome conformational state of cells (N99) was shown. The insertion in bacterial chromosome of the two prophages reduced both resonance frequencies considerably. The decrease of both resonance frequencies was propotionate to the increase of the haploid genome length. Shifts of the resonance frequency were not accompanied by change in the sign of effective EMR polarization. The results indicate that the frequencies of resonance interaction with low-intensity millimeter waves are determined by the genome structure.
