English We investigate the competition between spinodal decomposition and dynamical arrest using aqueous solutions of the globular protein lysozyme as a model system for colloids with short-range attractions. We show that quenches below a temperature <i>T</i><sub><i>a</i></sub> lead to gel formation as a result of a local arrest of the protein-dense phase during spinodal decomposition. The rheological...
