Spatially Resolved Transcriptomics: The Landscape of Tools for Spatial Gene Expression
September 9 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT
Recent advances in spatially resolved transcriptomics have greatly expanded the knowledge of complex multicellular biological systems. The importance of spatial context to infer deeper biological meaning is unquestionable, but technological constraints have historically limited broad adoption for various applications. The field has quickly expanded in recent years, and several new technologies have been developed that aim to combine gene expression data with spatial information. The vast array of methodologies displays fundamental differences in their approach to obtain this information and, thus, demonstrate method-specific advantages and shortcomings. Nevertheless, the field of spatially resolved transcriptomics is accelerating in technological advancement, and the many biological analyses made possible by this advancement are just beginning to be fully explored.
