Spatial Transcriptomics

Spatial Transcriptomics is a molecular profiling method to determine the cellular localization of mRNA molecules on a tissue section. This was chosen as the method of the year by Nature magazine in 2020.
The Genomics Core Facility has established NanoString’s GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler technology as a service and is currently working on establishing the 10x Genomics Visium technology. 
The NanoString’s GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler (DSP) combines spatial and molecular profiling technologies by generating whole digital transcriptomes and profiling data for 100s of validated Protein analytes. This unique combination of high-plex and high-throughput spatial profiling enables researchers to rapidly and quantitatively assess the biological implications of the heterogeneity within tissue samples. For more information about DSP applications please visit this NanoString website.
