I regard the autocorrelation data you provided as a Gram matrix.

Then conversion to a Euclidean distance matrix (EDM) is straightforward -
Chapter 5.4.2 of Convex Optimization & Euclidean Distance Geometry.

The program calculates only the first 20 eigenvalues of an oblique projection of the EDM on a positive semidefinite (PSD) cone -
Chapter 7.0.4 - 7.1 ibidem.

You can see at runtime that there are many significant eigenvalues; which means, the Euclidean body (the molecule) lives in a space higher than dimension 3, assuming I have interpreted the E.coli data correctly.

To get a picture corresponding to physical reality, we obliquely project the EDM on the closest rank-3 subset of the boundary of that PSD cone; this means, precisely, we truncate eigenvalues.

It is unlikely that this picture is an accurate representation unless the number of eigenvalues of that projection approaches 3 prior to truncation.

Matlab Figures allow 3D rotation in real time, so you can get a good idea of the body's shape.

I include a low-resolution figure here (frame 4) for reference.
