"....Xun Xu, CEO of BGI Group, who directs BGI Research. He watches other company activities in this area and believes the BGI approach will have the highest resolution. The approach captures a few hundred data points per cell, says Xu." Nature Methods spotted great potential in BGI spatial omics innovation is featured in January 2021.
BGI STOmics® is a pioneer in advancing spatially-resolved transcriptomic analysis through its proprietary Stereo-Seq™ (SpaTial Enhanced REsolution Omics-Sequencing) technology. Built on DNA Nanoball (DNB) technology, Stereo-Seq™ offers researchers a novel tool to explore spatial biology with unprecedented field-of-view and resolution.
Stereo-Seq™ is performed in square-centimeter units, with the standard 1x1 cm RNA capture unit employing the STOmics-GeneExpression-S1 Chip. STOmics-GeneExpression-S1 combines centimeter-field-of-view in situ capture of whole transcriptome information with nanoscale resolution, powering the unrivaled quality of Stereo-Seq. STOmics-GeneExpression-S1 enables researchers to perform spatial transcriptomic analysis at the tissue, cellular, subcellular, and molecular levels within one tissue sample.
STOmics-GeneExpression-S1 Chips are patterned grids of probes containing spatial coordinates. Upon interaction with a tissue section, cDNA is synthesized in situ from mRNA captured by the chip probes. Sequencing the cDNA with their spatial coordinates allows in silico reconstitution of the spatial transcriptomic profile of the tissue section, allowing easy visualization and analysis.
STOmics-GeneExpression-S1 resolves the developmental structure-specific gene expression patterns in mouse embryos at centimeter-scale fields of view. A. Hematoxylin and eosin staining of an E16.5 embryo section. B. Unsupervised clustering analysis identifies different anatomical structures in the E16.5 embryo. C. Spatial expression heatmap of the indicated genes representing different developing structures in an E16.5 embryo section.
