      10x Visium Spatial Gene Expression Solution Seminar - The University of Iowa

      10x Genomics presents: Visium Spatial Gene Expression Solution The ability to discern spatial gene expression differences in complex biological systems is critical to our understanding of developmental biology and the progression of disease. However, the complexity presented by heterogeneous tissue has been historically difficult to overcome. Immunohistochemistry, ISH, and H&E staining, foundational tools for understanding tissue architecture, are based on a combination of gene expression and cell morphology information. Though recent advances in RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) have made it possible to obtain unbiased high-throughput gene expression data, these experiments require dissociated cells and cannot preserve morphological context, until now.  The Visium Spatial Gene Expression Solution from 10x Genomics analyzes complete transcriptomes in intact tissue sections, allowing you to discover genes and markers relevant to your research without having to rely on known targets. Preserving spatial resolution offers critical information for understanding the relationships between cellular function, phenotype, and location in the tissue. Featured Speakers: Steven Hoffman, Single-Cell Sequencing Marketing Manager, Illumina, Inc. - "Emerging Trends and Applications in Single Cell Sequencing" Melissa Leone, Sales Executive, 10x Genomics - "Visium Spatial Gene Expression Solution" Leesa Pennell, PhD, Technical Application Scientist, BioLegend - "Simultaneous Proteomics and Transcriptomics: TotalSeqTM and The Future of Single Cell Analysis" * The meeting is free to attend, but registration is required. Please RSVP to reserve your spot. We look forward to seeing you there! Questions? Contact Melissa Leone at
