The interaction between delta electrons and DNA molecules and other biological structures is one of the important processes taking place in hadron therapy. This paper discusses the formation of low-energy electrons and ions of DNA molecules and other biomolecular ions in an electrostatic storage ring. The results of experimental studies into the interaction between electrons and biomolecular ions for a simulation of the contribution that delta electrons make to the radiation damage of cells in hadron therapy are presented.
