Spatial Analysis with Seurat: Unlocking Single-Cell Insights from CODEX Data

Seurat is an R package developed by Rahul Satija’s lab at the New York Genome Center. A widely used, open-source tool for single-cell analysis, Seurat was designed to explore single-cell RNA sequencing data. Seurat can also be applied to multiplex imaging-based spatial phenotyping data generated with CODEX®. Bioinformatics Field Application Scientist, Grady Carlson, PhD, shared the steps for using Seurat to analyze CODEX datasets…

Spatial Analysis of Cellular Neighborhoods: Uncovering Complex Interactions in Tissue Biology

The tumor microenvironment is undeniably complex. Specialized immune cells interact directly and indirectly with tumor cells in a constantly evolving relationship that influences the biology of the tumor. Spatial context is essential to uncovering the mysteries of cell behavior and interactions. Just as individuals may behave differently in cities, suburbs, and rural areas, individual cells adopt different roles depending on their surroundings, or neighborhoods. A pioneering study published in Cell by Dr. Garry Nolan’s lab at Stanford University introduced a novel analysis framework…

Webinar Rewind: The Human Cell Atlas

The mission of the Human Cell Atlas is to create comprehensive reference maps of all human cells to describe and define the cellular basis of health and disease. Dr. Kai Kessenbrock, Assistant Professor of Biological Chemistry at UC Irvine, is a Co-Principal Investigator on the Human Breast Cell Atlas Project, which seeks to map all …

Three Data Management Considerations for Digital Pathology

Digital pathology has a number of benefits over traditional microscopy. It allows for better management of data and therefore better security. It also minimizes human interaction, and thus human error, through automated quality control, image transfer, and data management. Digital slides can be organized easily, making search more effective. They can also be stored indefinitely …
