Figs 1-20:
3 hierarchies of condensations in each filament are considered: hierarchy 1 is denoted by a capital letter, format 'NNA', hierarchy 2 is denoted by a number, format 'NNAN', hierarchy 3 is denoted by a lowercase letter, format 'NNANa', Thus the name of an individual condensation might be 'GF 3A1b', which is the second sub-subfragment (b) inside the first subfragment (1) inside the first fragment (A) of the globular filament 3.
