G4-DNA examples not working for the carbon ion as projectile

When I tried to simulate the DNA strand breaks by “pdb4dna”, “DNA-clustering” and “microdosimetry” they are not working properly for ions projectile heavier than alpha particles.

However, it gives some results only for energies larger than 600 keV. I think it is not correct while the lower energies must have considerable affect. For the alpha-particles it has.

Has any body simulated DNA damage successfully when carbon ion hit the DNA ?


Thank you for your report! We are working on this issue and update will be available for next release.
