Join the Spatialomics Interest Group

The Spatialomics Interest Group (SIG) is a forum to connect UMN researchers from different disciplines with experts in spatial genomics and with UMN core facilities, who will coordinate the efforts and workflows for this multi-disciplinary field. The purpose of the group is to provide structured roundtable discussions and collaboration among interested parties that will enable the implementation and adoption of spatial genomic technologies for the UMN research community.

Technologies: NanoString GeoMx DSP, 10X Genomics Visium, IONPath MIBI, and more
Cores: UMN Genomics Center, University Imaging Center, BioNet, MSI
 
Meetings will be monthly and each meeting will highlight a particular spatial technology.

Main Activities

  • Members will share their experiences and results with nascent spatial genomics technologies.
  • Cores and vendors will assist early adopters in evaluating technologies and will assist with their initial experimental plan (number of samples, technique sharing, QC checkpoints, sequencing depth, etc).
  • The entire group will provide guidance and information on how researchers can apply a spatial genomic technology to achieve a specific research goal.
  • Vendors will present technical details about how to get started with their technologies (experimental set-up, sample requirements, reagents, analysis, troubleshooting, etc.)
  • The entire group with discuss proposals for funding equipment and resources for spatial genomics (e.g., AIAC grant opportunities).
  • Outcome: Dialogue and cooperation among the core labs providing tissue and microscopic services, next-generation sequencing, and analysis.
