Two auxotrophic strains of Escherichia coli K12 were allowed to conjugate while exposed to a constant, homogenous magnetic field and in the absence of a magnetic field. Statistical analysis indicated a significant inhibition of bacterial conjugation by the magnetic field, with each exposed culture averaging 26% inhibition.
