If I follow this article correctly, we're talking distances of nanometers. That's not a great distance and could just be chemical bonds and polarity doing the matching.
I'm not convinced based on this article that the DNA is 'telepathic'...

1.2. Experimental Achievements with Shape Dependent Casimir Forces including the Lateral Casimir Force: The Casimir force is theoretically known to exhibit strong shape dependent properties. We have done the only experimental demonstration to date of the non-trivial boundary dependence of the Casimir force. This work has also been published in Physical Review Letters in '99. Here we showed that one can dramatically alter the normal Casimir force that attracts two parallel surfaces by introducing a very small periodic texture to the surfaces. We have now extended this work by experimentally demonstrating that one can even get lateral (horizontal) Casimir forces which act parallel to the two surfaces used. We demonstrated it between two surfaces imprinted with nanoscale sinusoidal corrugations. The lateral Casimir force measured was about a few hundred femto Newtons (10-13 N). With our demonstration of the lateral Casimir force, quantum vacuum activated lateral motion might be possible in silicon chip micro-machines.

Hahaha, this post and its following replies are very proof positive of how people read things and believe them too easily without really questioning anything about it.
Lemme continue the tradition.
THAT THURR IS SOME GOOD DNA, MUST BE SOME TELEPATHISICISM IN THURR SUMWHERRZZ!
