Workshop 1: LIPID MAPS Tools and Advances in Lipidomics Techniques
The LIPID MAPS Lipidomics Gateway is a comprehensive online resource providing databases of lipid structures and lipid-associated genes or proteins, a variety of lipidomics tools, experimental data for lipids and genes along with protocols and standards, context specific cellular networks and pathways as well as guidelines, tutorials and instructional material for the research community. It features a lipid classification system which has gained worldwide acceptance and an interactive online lipid structure database, the LIPID MAPS structure database (LMSD) with over 43,000 unique curated structures making it the largest of its kind in the world. The LIPID MAPS in-silico structure database (LMISSD) of over a million computationally generated structures covers most of the commonly occurring lipid classes. The LIPID MAPS Proteome Database (LMPD) of lipid-related genes and proteins contains data for over 8,500 genes and over 12,500 proteins from 10 major research species. One can access annotations, such as genomic DNA, mRNA, protein domain, ontology and biochemical pathway information, with cross-links to external databases, relevant to each gene/protein of interest. The Lipidomics Gateway contains a comprehensive suite of online mass spectrometry search and prediction tools to provide an integrated search and reference resource for lipidomics MS researchers. A suite of structure-drawing tools has been developed and deployed which dramatically increase the efficiency of generating large and complex lipid structures, facilitate data entry into lipid-structure databases and permit "on-demand" structure generation in conjunction with a variety of mass spectrometry–based informatics resources. LIPID MAPS is currently funded by a multi-institutional grant from the Wellcome Trust, held jointly by Cardiff University, University of California, San Diego and the Babraham Institute, Cambridge. Our international team includes programmers, curators and webmaster and is led by Valerie O’Donnell, Ed Dennis, Shankar Subramaniam and Michael Wakelam.
