A Harvard University team describes a strategy for quantifying RNA transcripts within subcellular compartments using a spatial transcriptomic approach called "multiplexed error-robust fluorescence in situ hybridization," or MERFISH, in combination with cellular structure imaging. The researchers demonstrated that they could pick up the spatial distribution of some 10,050 genes in individual cells with around 80 percent efficiency, while misidentifying roughly 4 percent.
