In the matrix, the value of the mixing exponent (β) is shown for each pair of volume fractions (confinement) and self-attraction (ϕ, ϵ). The matrix colors correspond to the values of β: green for β > 0.12 and red for β < 0.12. The green regions in the matrix correspond to the phase diagram in Fig 4b, which indicates that for β > 0.12, chromosomes mix within the reptation time.
