S4 Class for Spatially Resolved Transcriptomics Data

Bioconductor version: Development (3.15)

Defines an S4 class for storing data from spatially resolved transcriptomics (ST) experiments. The class extends SingleCellExperiment to support storage and retrieval of additional information from spot-based and molecule-based ST platforms, including spatial coordinates, images, and image metadata. A specialized constructor function is included for data from the 10x Genomics Visium platform.
