      Biological charge transfer via flickering resonance 

      Zhang, Y.; Liu, C.; Balaeff, A.; Skourtis, Spiros S.; Beratan, David N. (2014)
      Biological electron-transfer (ET) reactions are typically described in the framework of coherent two-state electron tunneling or multistep hopping. However, these ET reactions may involve multiple redox cofactors in van ...
