What is Lipidomics? Lipidomics is the large-scale investigation of amounts, structures and functions of complete set of lipids (the lipidome) in biological systems, such as cells, body fluids or whole organisms. Lipidomics includes also interaction between lipids, as well as their interaction with proteins and other metabolites.

Modern lipidomics supplies a fully quantitative description of lipidomes down to the level of individual lipid molecules. Lipidomics provides together with e.g. genomics, proteomics and metabolomics the »omics« foundation for advanced system biology. Lipidomics belongs to the overall metabolomics market with a particular focus on lipids.
