The passage of ionizing radiation through living organisms initiates physical and chemical processes that create clusters of damaged nucleotides within one or two turns of the DNA. These clusters are widely considered an important initiating event for the induction of other biological endpoints, including cell killing and neoplastic transformation. Monte Carlo simulations of the DNA damage formation process are a useful adjunct to experiments because they provide additional information about… CONTINUE READING
