We present a new computational strategy to evaluate the charge-transfer (CT) parameters for hole transfer in DNA. On the basis of a fragment-orbital approach, site energies and coupling integrals for a coarse-grained tight-binding description of the electronic structure of DNA are rapidly calculated using the approximative density functional method(More)
We investigate in detail the charge transport characteristics of DNA wires with various sequences and lengths in the presence of solvent. Our approach combines large-scale quantum/classical molecular dynamics (MD) simulations with transport calculations based on Landauer theory. The quantum mechanical transmission function of the wire is calculated along MD(More)
The approximate density-functional tight-binding theory method DFTB3 has been implemented in the quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics (QM/MM) framework of the Gromacs molecular simulation package. We show that the efficient smooth particle-mesh Ewald implementation of Gromacs extends to the calculation of QM/MM electrostatic interactions. Further, we make(More)
