Abstract

The use of the DNA duplex as a molecular wire is discussed with particular attention to recent experimental findings. Experimental studies of photo-excited hole dynamics in DNA can be understood within the phenomenological hopping model. However a microscopic first principles approach requires taking into account the interaction between charge and duplex degrees of freedom. The nature of possible metallic native DNA behavior is discussed.
