Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Bone and cartilage biology has advanced significantly in the last decade. In particular, revolutionary new technologies including gene-editing techniques, bioinformatics using next-generation sequencers, and in vivo imagining approaches contribute to the paradigm shift of bone and cartilage biology. These pivotal studies promote the understanding of bone and cartilage biology at a molecular, cellular, and animal level and provide important knowledge for molecular and pathological mechanisms of bone and cartilage diseases. This Special Issue focuses on new frontiers of bone and cartilage biology and provides novel ideas for bone and cartilage diseases.
