We are the Spatial Research lab – Welcome!



Our research focuses on developing innovative experimental methods as well as novel computational tools for spatially resolved omics in mammalian and plant tissue sections.

You can find out more about our team and our academic research activities under the Research section.

NEW REVIEW OUT. “Spatially Resolved Transcriptomes—Next Generation Tools for Tissue Exploration” is new review article written by our own Michaela, Joseph, and Joakim! In this publication you can read about the different spatially resolved transcriptomics technologies available as of today, how they compare against each other, and what we may expect from the future.

PUBLICATION ALERT! 🤖 Today you can read about “Automation of Spatial Transcriptomics library preparation to enable rapid and robust insights into spatial organization of tissues” in BMC Genomics. If you are interested in automating you spatial transcriptomics library prep then Emelie, Sami, and the other co-authors have it all figured out for you!

NEW PUBLICATION OUT IN CELL! ✨ After much hard work, Michaela Asp’s and Stefania Giacomello’s article “A spatiotemporal organ-wide gene expression and cell atlas of the developing human heart” is now in print! Together with co-authors Ludvig Larsson and others, they have mapped the cellular organisation of the developing human heart. We hope this will be a great resource for many researchers who wish to explore the heart development. ❤️

SPATIALCPIE FOR ST ANALYSIS. “SpatialCPie” is a new R/Bioconductor package, developed by Joseph and Ludvig Bergenstråhle, which can be used for visualization of clusters at multiple resolutions and proportions for your spatial transcriptomics data. Read more about the tool on GitHub, Bioconductor, or the BMC Genomics publication “SpatialCPie: an R/Bioconductor package for spatial transcriptomics cluster evaluation”.

SPATIAL TRANSCRIPTOMICS IN RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS. Today is a great day – our group did not only get one article published, but two! Konstantin Carlberg, PhD student, has worked together with Vivianne Malmström and her group at Karolinska Institutet to study the spatial signatures of inflammation in arthritic joints.
