How to determine which physical process model to use(DNA)

Dear experts,

I recently wanted to try to simulate DNA damage caused by high-energy particles at the microscopic scale.

I would like to ask is there any way to specify what list of physical processes I should use? I’ve looked at the documentation, but it’s not clear yet what physical process model should I use.

Physics List Guide — Geant4 Documentation 11.2 documentation (

I wish someone could tell me what physical or biological conditions I need to first understand if I need to simulate DNA breaks, and then what list of physical processes should I use.

your sincerely,

Have you had a look at the examples at geant4/examples/extended/medical/dna ? that should get you going a bit.
