Researchers studying any organism with genomic data can follow this simple walkthrough to create sets of barcoded probes for the multiplexed FISH technique called MERFISH. We’re sharing interactive code notebooks that can be adapted to design barcoded FISH probes for any species.

Constraining motile microorganisms for live imaging often requires costly microfluidics or optical traps to keep them in view. We used patterned stamps and agar to make versatile, inexpensive “microchambers” and offer a way to predict the right chamber size for a given organism.
