DNA Damage Formation Parameters
Biophysical Parameters (or sample input files)


  • ENDO: (damage formed by endogenous processes)
  • IRAD:  (damage formed by ionizing radiation)


Tip: Although the original LPL, RMR, and TLK models did not explicitly account for the formation of DNA damage through endogenous (spontaneous) processes, the damage formation models included in the Virtual Cell software can account for the possibility that endogenous processes create DNA damage.  By default, endogenous processes do not create any DNA damage.
