- Despite over half a century of study, many interesting questions concerning protein folding remain. I detail the gaps in our theoretical understanding of folding, describe how new theories and experiments could fill those gaps, and discuss my own attempts to understand one of biology's most amazing phenomena. Specifically, I discuss how master equations can be used to understand folding kinetics, how we can understand the surprising simplicity of folding kinetics, and how a experiments determining the rate-length law of folding could contribute to our ability to falsify theoretical arguments. I conclude with five stimulating questions that if answered would further our understanding of folding significantly.
