What does theory tell us about electron transfer and transport in DNA?

Ralf Bulla

Theoretische Physik III
Universität Augsburg
   






Measurements of electron transfer rates as well as of charge transport characteristics in DNA produced a number of seemingly contradictory results, ranging from insulating behaviour to the suggestion that DNA is an efficient medium for charge transport. This talk gives a brief overview of various strategies for the theoretical modeling and understanding of electron transfer and transport in DNA, such as the application of ab-initio methods, the role of sequence disorder, and the relation of electron transfer in DNA to quantum impurity physics.
