  • The Lipid Metabolites and Pathways Strategy (LIPID MAPS) initiative constitutes the first broad scale national exploration of lipidomics and is supported by a U.S. National Institute of General Medical Sciences Large Scale Collaborative "Glue" Grant. The emerging field of lipidomics faces many obstacles to become a true systems biology approach on par with the other "omics" disciplines. With a goal to overcome these hurdles, LIPID MAPS has been developing the necessary infrastructure and… CONTINUE READING
