Alex K. Shalek, Rahul Satija

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey


A new paper in Science by Zhuang and colleagues introduces multiplexed error-robust FISH (MERFISH). MERFISH extends single-molecule imaging techniques to profile the copy number and localization patterns of thousands of genes, representing a major advance for spatial transcriptomics, with exciting potential applications in immunology.
