We investigate the influence of a dissipative environment which effectively comprises the effects of counterions and hydration shells, on the transport properties of short DNA wires. Their electronic structure is captured by a tight-binding model which is embedded in a bath consisting of a collection of harmonic oscillators. Without coupling to the bath a temperature independent gap in the ...
