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). We will provide a software package for computing the LUX Score from your lipidome data interfacing it to LipidXplorer and other softwares for lipid ID and quantitation.
