We propose a model Hamiltonian for describing charge transport through short homogeneous double stranded DNA molecules. We show that the hybridization of the overlapping $\pi$, orbitals in the base-pair stack coupled to the backbone is sufficient to predict the existence of a gap in the nonequilibrium current-voltage characteristics with a minimal number of parameters. Our results are in a good ...
