Enhancing Precision Medicine with Spatial Genomics and Transcriptomics

Spatial genomics transcriptomics (SGT) is a novel technique that allows researchers to map where RNA is expressed across intact tissue sections at single-cell resolution. Traditional transcriptomics techniques like RNA sequencing provides gene expression profiles for entire tissues or cell populations but loses all spatial information about where specific genes are expressed within the tissue. SGT overcomes this limitation by capturing both the spatial location and molecular signatures of thousands of cells simultaneously without having to isolate individual cells.
