この研究は、糸状菌（Aspergillus nidulans）およびモジホコリカビ（Physarum polycephalum）の遺伝的プロセスに対するマイクロ波の影響を調べた。菌の懸濁液に、遠方界のCWおよびパルス波（パルス幅1 μs、パルス繰返し率600 pps）の2450 MHz電磁界（10 mW / cm2）のばく露を1時間与えた。その結果、発芽前および発芽中にばく露を受けた糸状菌の胞子では、生存率や形態学的変異の発生頻度に変化は見られなかった；CWマイクロ波のばく露を受けたモジホコリカビにおける、3H-チミンのDNA取り込みは、対照群より5倍、温度対照群より2倍、増加した、と報告している。

To investigate the effects of microwave exposure on two different kinds of fungi.
The organisms studied were: 1) Aspergillus nidulans, an Ascomycete and 2) Physarum polycephalum, a Myxomycete. Spores of A. nidulans were exposed before and during germination to investigate changes in survival rate and morphological appearance. On P. polycephalum the incorporation of radioactive labeled 3H-Thymine into DNA under microwave exposure was studied.
(evaluator's notice: the authors have used Physar-i-um in the headline and Physarum in the text. According to the NCBI taxonomy database the latter orthography is the right one.)
No changes in survival rate and morphological mutations were found in A. nidulans.
The investigation on the 3H-Thymine incorporation into DNA by P. polycephalum showed the following result: The incorporation rate found under conditions of microwave exposure was nearly five times greater than in control group and about twice than found in thermal control group. But on the basis of the results a simple thermal activation could not be excluded; in other words: the observed increase can not clearly ascribe to exposure specifc parameters alone.
