As a Master student in the Biostatistics program of UZH, I am currently working on my master thesis. The project aims to propose a novel methodology for differential analyses from spatial transcriptomics data, that identifies spatially variable (SV) genes as well as the specific areas of the tissue affected by SV. Furthermore, the method will also investigate how spatial expression patterns vary between conditions (e.g., healthy vs. disease). Then, ideally the framework could be extended to do the same things with cell types.
