A computer program is described which facilitates comparison between the pattern of spots seen on different two-dimensional polyacrylamide electrophoresis gels. Essentially, the position of each spot is replotted on a graph by the computer using its molecular weight and isoelectric point as coordinates. An intensity factor is also assigned to each point by the operator which will determine the size and shape of the final plotted spot on the computer drawn figure. The resulting plot makes it more feasible to compare patterns of spots between independently run two-dimensional electrophoresis gels.
