Mapping the Future with Spatial Genomics: Single Cell Spatially Resolved Transcriptomic Imaging with MERSCOPE
Biological systems are composed of numerous cell types, intricately organized to form functional tissues and organs. While recent advancements in genomics technologies have made it possible to characterize cell types through careful analysis of the transcriptome, they are unable to resolve how gene expression and cell types are spatially arranged. In this presentation, we introduce you to Vizgen’s all-in-one in situ genomics platform MERSCOPE, which enables the direct profiling of the spatial organization of intact tissue with genomic scale throughput. The instrument, the MERFISH chemistry and use cases in neuroscience, oncology, and other research areas, will be presented as well.
