We address the relation between long-range correlations and charge transfer efficiency in aperiodic artificial or genomic DNA sequences. Coherent charge transfer through the highest occupied molecular orbital states of the guanine nucleotide is studied using the transmission approach, and the focus is on how the sequence-dependent backscattering profile can be inferred from correlations between base pairs.

TLDR
The relation between long-range correlations and coherent charge transfer in substitutional DNA sequences using the transfer matrix approach is addressed and it is found that the charge transfer efficiency varies for different substitutional sequences and many will present electronic delocalization in the system.
RENORMALIZATION SCHEME TO THE CHARGE TRANSFER EFFICIENCY OF SINGLE-STRAND DNA WITH LONG RANGE CORRELATED DISORDER
By using a renormalization group method together with a minimum set of parameters, the charge transfer efficiency of single-stranded synthetic guanine–cytosine DNA sequence with long-range correlated
Superexchange interaction enhancement of the quantum transport in a DNA-type molecule
We use the transfer matrix method and the Green function technique to theoretically study the quantum tunnelling through a DNA-type molecule. Ferromagnetic electrodes are used to produce the
Electronic transport in DNA.
TLDR
It is found that random and lambda-DNA have localization lengths allowing for electron motion among a few dozen basepairs only, and a novel enhancement of localization lengths is observed at particular energies for an increasing binary backbone disorder.
Charge transfer in DNA: effective Hamiltonian approaches
TLDR
This contribution will shortly review several approaches introduced during the last few years in order to describe charge transfer migration in DNA in terms of tight-binding effective Hamiltonians.
Effect of thermal fluctuations of twist angles on charge transport in DNA: A model calculation
We report theoretical investigations of charge transport through model DNA sequences with and without a superconducting electrode, focusing on the effect of the twist angle between neighboring base
Electric transport and coding sequences of DNA molecules
TLDR
A tight‐binding model is used to investigate the relation between the electric transport properties and the sequences of protein‐coding regions of complete genomes, and the sequence‐dependent transmission coefficient wG is the "characteristic migration length" for each species.
Charge localization in DNA fibers.
TLDR
It is found that at room temperature structural deformation does not provide an efficient localization mechanism for electron hole (positive charge) localization and evidence for the importance of changes in the protonation state for stabilizing the radical defect is found.
