Welcome to the web portal for Lipidomics Informatics for Life Sciences (LIFS)
The aim of LIFS includes implementation, establishment and provision of bioinformatics tools and services for lipidomics and its application in biomedical sciences.
These services will be made available to the public on the LIFS web portal.

LIFS Software Tools
LipidXplorer is a software that supports a variety of untargeted shotgun lipidomics experiments and experiments from LC/MS lipidomics. It is designed to support bottom-up and top-down shotgun lipidomics experiments performed on all types of tandem...
LUX score is the first metric for comparing lipidomes. It provides a measure of homology between lipidomes similar to genetic analyses (Marella et al. 2015, PLOS Comp. Biol). The original version is available at http://luxold.fz-borstel.de/ . The LUX...
mzTab-M Validator Webapplication
Reference validator for mzTab 2.0-M mzTab 2.0 for metabolomics is a data exchange format for mass-spectrometry-based experimental data from the "omics" and neighboring sciences, focusing on small molecules like metabolites and lipids. It is...
The spectral comparison score (SCS) algorithm provides a well-defined quality control approach for PRM based quantitation of lipid mediators. The score is based on the correlation between structural similarity and MS/MS fragmentation profile. All...
