Window size - the size of a window where set content (using '1000' by default).

Number of sequences - the number of sequences to generate (using '1' by default). 

Initialize random generator manually - value to initialize the random generator.

Reference - path to the reference file (could be a sequence or an alignment). 

Manual Base content - set the base content persents. To configure base content click on the Configure button and set base content manuallypercents manually.

GC Skew - set the GC skew of the resulted sequence.

Output file - output output file.

Format - output file format (using 'fasta' by default).
