Values between 0 and 100 are suitable for most cases.
Diameter of container in σ (bead diameter) units. Leave empty for modelling without this constraint.
May significantly extend computation time.
Check to include ev term
Model coordinates

The limits are: 5 - 2000
Genomic coordinates
Genomic region in format chrN:xxx-yyy
Values between 1000 - 100 000 are usually reasonable and strongly depend on size of modelling region
