The folding dynamics of individual structural elements in proteins is studied by a multi-probe and multi-frequency approach. In their Communication on page 10 884 ff., M. R. Bunagan, F. Gai, and co-workers achieve a significantly improved structural resolution in kinetic studies of protein folding using their approach. Application of this approach to the miniprotein Trp-cage provides new insights into the folding mechanism of this extensively studied protein.
