    We model intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) as associative polymers (APs). We study the kinetics of gelation in solutions of amphiphilic polymers that contain strongly associating stickers connected by long soluble chain segments. We explore the relation between primary sequence and droplet morphology in APs in poor solvent. We find that gelation of APs can be suppressed by grafting them to surfaces, a possible way to control aggregation of IDPs.
