The method, published in Science, pairs in situ sequencing with NGS using barcodes to provide spatial information on DNA sequences inside tissues.

The methods, both published in Nature Biotechnology this week, result in completely phased haplotypes, without the need for sequencing parental samples.

Developed by researchers at Yale University, the method, called deterministic barcoding in tissue sequencing, can map thousands of genes at 10 micron resolution.
