In this work I present types of stationary configurations of nematic polymer chains confined inside a spherical capsid. In this problem I use the complete tensor description of nematic ordering. The solutions are acquired by formulating the free energy density and solving the system Euler-Lagrange equations for number density of polymer segments and nematic order tensor. Due to the connectivity of polymer chains, both variables are connected by a continuity constraint. This constraint is integrated into free energy density functional via an appropriate penalty potential. The obtained types of polymer configurations are presented in a phase diagram. In the last part of this work the problem of DNA "softening" \, is addressed. The previous penalty potential of second order is replaced with the penalty potential of fourth order in the sources of the continuity constraint. I check the stability of this modified model and touch on some burning issues such as local melting of polymer chains, future expectations and ideas for the use of this model.
