- Proteins are dissolved and `persuaded' to migrate under an electric field.
- First in 1-D along a strip.
- Then in the second dimension down a gel held between two glass plates.
- The proteins are stained with a fluorescent dye and imaged using a laser.
- The result is an array in which the horizontal dimension corresponds to
charge and the vertical to molecular weight.
