  • Introduction to Lipids — Instructional Videos by Edward A. Dennis
    These videos were prepared for students in the UCSD School of Medicine and School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences by Professor Edward A. Dennis, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Department of Pharmacology, School of Medicine, University of California, San Diego. The initial files were *.ppt and were converted to *.m4v for upload to YouTube.

The LIPID MAPS consortium has developed a comprehensive classification, nomenclature, and chemical representation system for lipids, which serves as a basis for the following tutorials:
