LIPID MAPS® Highlights — October, 2018

The LIPID MAPS® Consortium (LIPID MAPS®) has partnered with the Lipid Standards Initiative (LSI) in a collaborative effort to better serve the needs of lipidomics researchers. LSI aims to create a common standard for minimum acceptable data quality and reporting for lipidomics. Read more about LSI on our Academic Partners page.
