J Bone Miner Res 36, 2300–2308. (2021)Abstract: brief: The genetic basis of human body height is only partly understood. This study combined genome-wide association study (GWAS) data with expression data from specific chondrocyte populations to identify genes responsible for skeletal growth. They found strong a...
