Special Issue Information
The emerging field of lipidomics is amongst the fastest-growing life science research fields of the recent decade. This is, on one hand, the result of an increasing awareness in the biomedical community that lipidomics was, in terms of its scientific and diagnostic potential, highly underrated for a long time, when compared to other ‘omics’ technologies. On the other hand, technological progress, in particular, mass spectrometry, has revealed functional details of the lipidome which were previously hardly conceivable. The merging of these occurrences has resulted in a flourishing atmosphere which attracts an ever-growing interest in this research field.
This Special Issue intends to adequately address the increasing scientific significance of lipidomics. In this context, we would like to invite lipidomics contributions for this Special Issue on a variety of related topics, from pure technological aspects to all kinds of life science applications.
Prof. Dr. Harald C. Köfeler
