Recent advances in skeletal muscle tissue engineering have resulted in an in vitro tissue model that can be used for studying the effects of genetic alterations, pharmacological interventions, and exercise on muscle physiology and function. Here, we present applications for this technology to further our understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying skeletal muscle adaptation in response to exercise.
