Molecular CartographyTM Grant Program

Spatial Agrigenomics

Accelerate progress in your field of study with the only subcellular spatial transcriptomics technology optimized for agrigenomic research.

About the Molecular Cartography Grant Program

The Resolve Biosciences Molecular Cartography Grant Program is designed to accelerate spatial transcriptomic research in specific areas by empowering scientists with immediate, fully subsidized access to Molecular Cartography services.

The inaugural Molecular Cartography Grant for Spatial Agrigenomics will be awarded to two researchers based on study design, technical feasibility, and the potential to advance discovery in the field. The award will include the subcellular spatial transcriptomic analysis of up to 8 tissue sections on one slide, using a fully customizable gene panel for up to 100 genes.

We have partnered successfully with customers on the following species and tissues relevant to agrigenomic research, showing the technical feasibility for projects working with these tissues:

  • Maize: Shoot Apical Meristem & Root
  • Rice: Root
  • Barley: Ear Meristem
  • Soybean: Root

If your species and/or tissue is outside of those listed above please still consider applying, as we are constantly expanding protocols and would love to hear from you. In these cases, experimental design and previous experience with the tissue in question will be discussed with finalists to establish technical feasibility and eligibility for award.

Close date: 28 February 2023

If you would like to discuss the scope of the technology before applying please email: [email protected]

Further conditions of the grant are defined in our Service Agreement.

How are you deciphering plants?

“We have been very impressed with the Resolve team and the Molecular Cartography results we have obtained in our collaboration with them. The results have allowed us to accurately annotate singlecell RNA-seq data from rice roots, which was previously difficult to interpret.”
