Dear Marion,

Thank you very much for your interest in these processes.

Basically, in order to use the DNA processes, you simply need to define the correct Physics List and use liquid water only as your target

You can find a detailed Physics list example here in the G4 documentation :

and also in the forum :
(look at item 168 for example)

Also, for a detailed description of the Physcis model, you can refer to the following publication :
Geant4 physics processes for microdosimetry simulation : design foundation and implementation of the first set of models,

IEEE Trans. Nucl. Sci. 54 (6-2) (2007) 2619-2628

Hope this help,
Best regards,

S. Incerti
