DayTimeSessionWhatWhoAbstract
September 27th 17:40 - 19:00 Poster Session (odd numbers) P3.3: Peakstrainer and LipidXplorerWeb for Online Shotgun Lipidomics Processing Pipeline Jacobo Miranda Ackermann, MPI CBG, Dresden, Germany LipidXplorerWeb is an enhanced online version of the free and open-source software kit LipidXplorer. It supports the identification and quantification of molecular species of any lipid class detected by shotgun experiments performed on any mass spectrometry platform. In contrast to the local installation, the internet version provides continuous enhancements and corrections to simplify the lipid identification routines based on users experience and requirement. For example users can select predefined collections of MFQL files (molecular fragmentation query language), or create their own and share them with other. Automated configuration generation, as well as warning for unexpected setting, make it easier for the user to implement the workflow. The major drawback of online processing is the large file sizes that need to be transferred, to mitigate this issue PeakStrainer can be run on a local installation and generate files where noise peaks are filtered out (without loosing low intensity signals) and the data is efficiently packed to minimize upload time, this allows batch processing of multiple shotgun acquisitions by high-resolution mass mapping, precursor and neutral-loss scanning, and data-dependent MS/MS. While the internet version is suitable for a variety of lipidomics applications in cell biology and molecular medicine, the flexible nature of MFQL and potential for collaboration and interaction lends itself to diverse applications of small molecule identification in experiments where molecules are consistently processed on a mass spectrometry platform.
