Spatial genomics is a new field that seeks to map the physical position of millions of RNA molecules in cells and tissues and correlate them to normal and pathological conditions. We developed a technology for RNA sequencing inside tissues, which allows studying RNA molecules with unprecedented detail. We use this technology to unravel how molecular content is stored within cells in space in order to understand the function of complex tissues.
