RNAscope multiplex fluorescent RNA-ISH detection is a powerful and sensitive tool for spatio-temporal RNA species detection in tissues. However, due to plant tissues' morphological and structural characteristics, its implication was not reported until Solanki et al., 2020 (https://doi.org/10.1186/s13007-020-00614-4) presented a modified protocol of tissue preparation and probe hybridization. This modified protocol on the barley leaf tissues can be adapted easily on other plant species and provides a powerful tool for plant researchers and cell biologists. In this webinar, we will discuss a practical approach of carrying out RNAscope assay using a parallel comparison of plant and animal samples to avoid common pitfalls and increase the chances of a successful experiment.
