That was indeed in the fine article, but only as part of the career background of one of the teachers of the person doing the experiment in the article. The experiment that was the subject of the article was a demonstration of changes in viral DNA. The bacteria remained unchanged at the end of paragraph 3.

It's this kind of lazy shifting from one thing to another that I was crtiticising in my comment, because it makes it easier for the nut-jobs to make it look like scientists are shifty and slack with standards of evidence.
