Spatial Transcriptomics 1280x200

Spatial Transcriptomics: From Methods to Insights

Technological advances in the sensitivity, resolution, and scale of spatially resolved -omics promise further insights towards uncovering novel biology. For stem cell research, there is great promise in utilizing spatial -omics technologies, along with bespoke methodological approaches, to understand how cellular interactions in space regulate cell fate decisions in the contexts of normal development and in disease. This series will showcase current and emerging spatial -omics technologies, recent statistical and computational approaches to analyze resulting datasets, and engage stem cell scientists to frame the questions being addressed, as well as what challenges must be overcome to enable such applications. This event will take place 4, 11, 18, and 25 April 2022. Sign up to receive emails about this event.
