Putting transcriptomics in its place

from Nature Reviews Genetics by Darren J. Burgess

A recent focus of transcriptomics is to supplement gene expression data with spatial information on cellular or tissue context in order to obtain a greater understanding of physiological gene regulatory processes. A challenge has been to achieve high-throughput in both the comprehensiveness of transcripts and the number of cells analysed. Three new studies report methodological advances that facilitate high-throughput spatially resolved transcriptomics.
