Spatially Resolved Transcriptomics: The Landscape of Tools for Spatial Gene Expression


Science for Life Laboratory, KTH Royal Institute Technology

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.

In this webinar sponsored by 10x Genomics, Dr. Joakim Lundeberg of the KTH Royal Institute of Technology will present: 

  • A historical timeline of spatial gene expression methods
  • The current landscape of spatial transcriptomic methods as well as their strengths and weaknesses
  • Applications of spatial transcriptomics in a broad spectrum of research areas, including oncology, immunology, and neuroscience 
  • Future developments in spatially resolved transcriptomics and where the field is heading
