Sometimes in the lab puzzles a control called Explosion factor appears by a structure. Clicking on it appears to increase the distance between individual base pairs.

I can't find anything about this in the documentation: what is its intended purpose?

This tool will show of the given structure has any overlaps, to allow for easier access to otherwise blocked bases. This was just added in preparation for a new lab that will hopefully be out soon, which happens to have a lot of overlaps.

Not a matter of great consequence, but setting the explosion factor to progressively negative values gives rise to some rather odd effects: parts of the molecule get truncated in a way that can't be reversed by resetting the explosion factor.
