Article in Scientific Reports

Springer Nature published a paper by LaSEEB researchers (Prof. João Sanches) explaining a novel methodology that allows the reduction of challenges faced because of cell variability. By designing a geometric compensation algorithm to cope with cell-to-cell difference the team managed to generate expression maps at an accurate level. This proposed method could be explored in research or diagnostic to identify patterns associated with diseases.
