Lipids represent the major constituents of marine organisms, as major players in biological membranes, with key roles in biological processes and acclimation to environmental changes. New research trends aim to contribute to a better knowledge of lipids’ role in the biological matrix, to understand the impact of climate change in marine organisms, and to develop new tools for chemophenotyping, traceability, biomarkers of trophic chains in marine ecosystems, and to disclose the nutritional value or prospective bioactive compounds for health applications.
“Lipids in the Ocean 2020” (http://lipids2020.web.ua.pt/), which will be held at the University of Aveiro, from 17 to 19 of November 2020, aiming to go in deep into these research interests covering topics related with lipids from marine organisms, such as marine lipidomics, lipids as biomarkers in trophic webs, green lipids from the ocean (seaweeds, microalgae, and macrophytes), marine lipid biotechnology, and seafood traceability using lipids, from basic research to sustainable production and applications in the food, nutraceutics, feed, cosmetics, and pharma industries.
This Special Issue welcomes not only attendees of “Lipids in the Ocean 2020” to publish their latest research outcomes, but also all researchers in relevant fields to share their exciting works with the community.
