Write up in IBMS BoneKEy

Two of our zebrafish abstracts from the 2014 ASBMR Annual Meeting got written up in a BoneKEy report on skeletal genomics! An excerpt from the article is below:

“Also, at this year’s meeting, a new animal model was introduced into the musculoskeletal (MSK) genetics field—a zebrafish (Danio rerio). Regenerating zebrafish caudal fin is a well-known model of post-amputation’s de novo membranous bone formation (however, it was not widely studied by the bone experts). Ronald Kwon of University of Washington used a transcriptomic analysis to reveal conserved osteogenic signatures during tail fin regeneration. Both he and a group from Harvard presented a technique of quantitative micro-computed tomography (μCT) analysis of zebrafish bone.”
