From thousands and tens of thousands to one…

Scientists have attempted to understand how cells work by studying the tiniest of details and understanding how each cell works in larger biological systems.

Technologies that allowed scientists to see detail at the nano-level could not provide similar insight for a wider field of vision.

With the development of BGI Group’s Stereo-seq technology, scientists no longer have to conduct thousands and even tens of thousands of experiments to create a coherent spatiotemporal map of biological systems they are studying.

In fact, they now only need to conduct just one.

BGI Group’s Stereo-seq technology now enables scientists to see a new level of detail – helping them see what they could not see before.

And helping them understand how cells communicate and work in concert with one another across space and time.

Impacting our world

The ability to see nano-scale detail and understand the space-time connect of cells in large biological systems for the first time is having a huge impact on human health.

Serving the global research community

In May 2022, BGI-Research, in partnership with international scientists, shared with the world the first panoramic atlases of life – a mapping of millions of cells and how they work together in complex organisms.

These scientists from 30 countries have formed the SpatioTemporal Omics Consortium (STOC), an open scientific community focused on using spatially resolved cellular resolution omics technology to map and understand life.

Their first panoramic spatial atlases developed using Stereo-seq technology developed by BGI-Research will help to broaden the scientific community’s knowledge of disease treatment, organ structures, development and aging, and to improve our understanding of biological evolution.
