Northwestern Whole Transcriptome Atlas Grant Program

APPLY NOW to quantitatively map high-plex protein or RNA to user-defined regions of FFPE/fresh-frozen tissue using the GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler.

Full Transcriptome Spatial RNA Analysis

The GeoMx Human Whole Transcriptome Atlas (GeoMx Hu WTA) provides an unbiased view of 18,000+ protein-coding genes. The GeoMx Hu WTA unlocks new pathways to be explored by researchers and enables GeoMx RNA profiling in oncology, immunology, neuroscience, developmental biology, and other diverse fields. GeoMx Hu WTA provides robust and sensitive performance on FFPE or Fresh Frozen samples.

Mouse models serve a critical role in understanding developmental biology, disease onset, progression, and treatment. Tissue heterogeneity, however, confounds the results from many mouse transcriptome studies based on bulk or single-cell RNA-seq data. Using the GeoMx Mouse Whole Transcriptome Assay, one can apply spatial transcriptomics to reveal the tissue architecture and underlying function in genetically modified mouse models.

One winner will be chosen and will be the FIRST Northwestern researcher to run a GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiling project.

The Grant winner will receive:

  • 4 slides worth of the WTA probes (mouse or human) 
  • Project and data analysis consultation
  • Commercially available morphology kit 
  • NanoString reagents needed to run project
