NGI webinar on Spatial Transcriptomics 10X Visium
NGI welcomes you to a webinar about the Spatial Transcriptomics 10X Visium technology.
The National Genomics Infrastructure (NGI) at SciLifeLab invites you to participate in a webinar on the Spatial Transcriptomics 10X Visium technology.
Spatially resolved transcriptomics, recently pronounced Method of the Year by Nature Methods, has undoubtedly changed the way we understand complex tissues. With the recent launch of the 10X Genomics Visium assay, we can now offer spatially resolved transcriptome-wide analysis in tissue sections, right here at NGI!
This webinar will serve as a guide through how the technology has evolved, how the protocol is run, and how spatial transcriptomics data can be analysed.
Our line-up of talks include speakers from NGI and the Spatial Research lab, as well as two keynote speakers; Dr. Alessondra Speidel, who will present how Spatial Transcriptomics has helped her understand how wound healing responds to different hydrogel materials, and Dr. James Chell, a Senior Scientist at 10X Genomics who will update us on the Visium spatial platform and its FFPE application.
Interested? Register here to find out more how NGI can support projects that can benefit from 10X Genomics Visium.
Date and time: April 20, 10:00-12:00
10:00 Introduction to Spatial Transcriptomics
Michaela Asp, PhD, Project coordinator NGI
10:15 The Spatial Transcriptomics 10X workflow
Annelie Mollbrink, PhD, Technical expert
10:30 Analyzing spatial transcriptomics data
Ludvig Larsson, Bioinformatician Spatial Research group
Remi-Andre Olsen, Bioinformatician NGI
10:55 Understanding the tissue-material interface during wound healing towards next generation therapies
Alessondra Speidel, PhD, MBB Deparment of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, Karolinska Institutet
One of the main remaining obstacles in the development and success of biomaterials for regenerative medicine applications is their frequent instigation of a foreign body response (FBR) in the recipient. Through state-of-the-art Visium technology, we compare and evaluate spatial profiles of tissue responses to commonly implemented hydrogel materials in wound healing applications (and tissue engineering, generally), within a mouse model.
11:15 Updates on the Visium spatial platform
James Chell, PhD, Senior Scientist, Research & Development 10X Genomics
11:30 Q&A session
