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 . The LUX Score Browser provides now all processing steps for computing the LUX score from your lipidome data within one software.
