Back to (program) business - Monday 16th

After some rest and relaxation a normal Monday followed: work and a talk by prof. Chin-Kun Hu on protein folding. Here, one of the essential issues is to understand the folding pathways. The talk presented us some results that illustrated the challenges how to model the problem and how to design experiments by force microscopy, such that they work by giving the right sequence. It appears that here simple statistical physics have a lot to give, but also some distance to go.
