  Biomolecules such as Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) possess the quantum charge transport property due to their chemical and electrical behavior and have the potential to become a key component for future molecular electronics. DNA Single Electron Transistor (DNA-SET) was proposed and realized by E, Ben-Jacob, Z. Hermon and S. Caspi in1998. In this paper we extend our earlier work on Current-Voltage (I-V) characteristics of DNA-SET using tunneling properties of P-bonds in sugar-Phosphate backbone of single strand DNA(ssDNA) molecule and provide graphically the effect of temperature on Drain to Source current at different temperature (thermal voltage). The charge transport mechanism in DNA-SET is derived from “Orthodox Theory” formulated by Averin and Likharev. The characteristic curves, drawn from the the simulated results of DNA-SET model in ‘C’ language, are plotted using Excel software for the investigation of effect of temperature variation on I-V curves of DNA-SET.
