This book provides a succint and up-to-date summary on the most recent musculoskeletal research-related protocols. It covers a broad range of areas, including molecular, cellular, animal, and ex vivo protocols in the orthopedic research field. Written in an accessible manner, it provides a user-friendly interface for musculoskeletal research scientists, technicians, postgraduate students, and especially fresh laboratory users to readily assess the relevant protocols, have a full understanding of the rationale behind a particular experiment, and competently conduct experiments.
