Simulation results are shown for volume fraction ϕ = 0.4. (a) Mixing index α are shown for different ϵ. For ϵ = 0.25, disconnected beads mix quickly and reach the maximum value of the mixing index (α = 3). (b) Late time snapshot (t = 106τ time steps) of simulated disconnected chromosome beads for attraction strength ϵ = 0.25.
