Bits & Bites #1: Fundamentals of Lipidomics

Event Date


The instructor for this session of Bits & Bites is Dr. Tong Shen from UC Davis. In this short course, we will cover topics related to lipids and systems-level scale analysis of lipids (lipidomics):

  • Introduction to lipids, classification, and functions
  • Mass spectrometry-based lipidomics, separation techniques, and perspectives on other novel technologies Case studies of lipidomics applications
  • Entire experimental pipeline—study design, sample extraction, analysis, data processing, identification, statistical methods, and visualization/interpretation resources
  • Quality control and standardization

Participants will gain a high-level overview of lipidomics in order to determine suitable strategies for their own research.
