Abstract

Effect of Humidity on Structural Distortion and Conductance of DNA Nanowire

One of the intensively explored domains of the current bionanotechnology is the focus for search of nano-materials intended to develop high throughput electronic devices. Among the questioned physical materials deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) has given promising background to be explored as potential nanowire material for aspiring nano-devices. The distinguished characteristics of electron hopping between DNA bases intrigues investigators to provide insights of the structrual properties of the DNA under varying relative humidity condition. Present manuscript attempts to provide insights for conductance of double stranded λ-DNA and its short stretch of intrinsic sequences in correspondence to structural distortion as a result of different relative humidity (RH) conditions.
