Presentation

Considering their substantial presence in everything from cell and organelle membranes to complex structural aggregates (micro/nano domains), lipids have enjoyed little attention in the field of biological research. These micro/nano domains assemble into biologically functional networks collectively referred to as biomembranes. Although the “-omics’” era has provided large amounts of data results for those interested in proteins, transcription, genes, and metabolism, lipidomics lags behind. The richness of the lipid repertoire exceeds 100’000 species and has recently received more attention due to information implicating them in all kinds of biological processes via genomic, proteomic, and other “–omics” analyses. Consequently lipid researchers can also benefit from existing tools developed for other fields. The researchers involved in this project aim to answer several fundamental questions surrounding lipids in living systems in order to begin building up a comprehensive understanding of these molecules as a whole.
