TITLE: MERSCOPE: Spatial Analysis Platform

FEATURING: Dr. George Emanuel


Biological systems are composed of numerous cell types, intricately organized to form functional tissues and organs. Cell atlas initiatives with single-cell RNA sequencing have begun to characterize cell types based on their RNA expression profiles. However, the tissue organization is lost when cells are dissociated for single-cell sequencing, making it difficult to study how the cellular heterogeneity is contributing to the function of the tissue.

In this presentation, we will introduce you to Vizgen’s all-in-one in situ genomics platform MERSCOPETM which enables the direct profiling of the spatial organization of intact tissue with genomic-scale throughput.
