Skeletal muscle biology has multiple aspects, spanning from mechanotransduction and mass control at the cellular level to force generation and the regulation of metabolism at the systemic level. Insights into skeletal muscle biology have promoted knowledge about physiological states (metabolism, tissue injury and repair, longevity and ageing) and disease (muscular dystrophy, cancer-associated cachexia, or even diabetes). These diverse aspects will be discussed at the 2017 meeting on Advances in Skeletal Muscle Biology in Health and Disease that will take place from March 8-10 at the University of Florida. We have collected selected FEBS Letters publications that might be of interest to conference participants and those who will not be able to attend alike. We hope that you will enjoy this Virtual Issue and invite you to submit related work to our journal.
