Several kinds of protein condensates have been observed in living cells, and the liquid-liquid phase separation is regarded as a basic mechanism of the condensate formation. However, given that there are thousands of protein species in a cell, it is not clear how the number and the composition of distinct condensates are controlled. One of the physics approaches to this problem is considering a model of many components with random interactions. In this Journal Club, I will introduce a recent paper  that applies random-matrix theory to the phase separation dynamics.
