8158 – Molecular Barcoding Tools and Methods for Spatial Mapping of Complex Microbial Communities with Single-Cell Resolution

Detection and identification of microbial organisms within microbial communities is frequently approached using metagenomic sequencing. These methods, however, do not provide spatial context that can be crucial for studying microbial organization as well as the functional interactions between these organisms and their ecosystem. Another approach, the identification of differently labelled microbe species is highly constrained […]
