The European Association for Cancer Research (EACR) & NanoString, in collaboration with Illumina, will award the two most impactful proposals in cancer research with the ability to discover spatial biomarkers using the latest Digital Spatial Profiling chemistry. The NanoString GeoMx® Whole Transcriptome Atlas (WTA), for use with the GeoMx® Digital Spatial Profiler (DSP) blends high-plex and spatial analysis in a single experiment.
The GeoMx® Whole Transcriptome Atlas (WTA) is designed for comprehensive profiling of spatial biology. The WTA assays profile the RNA expression of over 18,000 genes in human or of over 21,000 genes in mouse, with spatial resolution, in any region of interest, from a single tissue section, using the GeoMx Digital Spatial Profiler. The read out is performed with the Illumina NextSeq™ 2000 or NovaSeq™ 6000 Sequencing System, located at NanoString’s premises.
The grant is exclusive to EACR members.
The EACR is grateful for the continued support of its Industry Partners:
