Although magnetism of DNA in strong fields is well established, it is not commonly considered magnetic in natural weak fields. SInce the behavior of strings of magnetic balls resembles some of DNA behaviors such as in replication and transcription, we hypothesize that DNA is magnetic and that DNA strands are magnetized in antiparallel orientation. We hypothesise that magnetism of DNA is based on ring currents of pi electrons in its bases. We hypothesize that ring currents are fueled by heat, enzymes or active forms of water. Accordingly, we proposed a helical model of magnetic lines in DNA. We also suggested a new way how the magnetic field in DNA may oscillate and that these oscillations will be sequence dependent. We suggest that collective oscillations of interspersed and periodic repetitive DNA sequences could contribute to electromagnetic communications between the cells and creation of Gurwitch morphogenic field. We suggest that primary cilium may be an antenna for sending and receiving electromagnetic oscillations by the genome.
