LIPID MAPS® Highlights

Search Functionality

We have recently updated the search facility of the LIPID MAPS homepage. We have added auto-complete functionality, so as you type, the search will indicate which areas of the LIPID MAPS databases contain the term you’ve typed, enabling you to get to the result you’re looking for more efficiently.

We’ve also incorporated RefMet into the search, which will standardise many non-standard lipid names prior to the search (eg DAG C36:3 will become DG 36:3), enabling lipids described this way to be found more easily.
