    We present a survey of the effect of vacancies on quantum transport in graphene, exploring conduction regimes ranging from tunnelling to intrinsic transport phenomena. Vacancies, with density up to 2%, are distributed at random either in a balanced manner between the two sublattices or in a totally unbalanced configuration where only atoms sitting on a given sublattice are randomly removed. Quantum transmission shows a variety of different behaviours, which depend on the specific system geometry and disorder distribution. The investigation of the scaling laws of the most significant quantities allows a deep physical insight and the accurate prediction of their trend over a large energy region around the Dirac point. © 2013 by the authors; licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.
