Multiomics approaches harness synergies and eliminate shortcomings to effectively deliver what one omics science alone cannot achieve. Lipotype’s new white paper “Unlocking the Power of Multiomics” highlights why combining genomics with lipidomics makes for a great omics pair.
Genomics for genes, lipidomics for lipids
Being major players in cardiovascular disease research, genomics and lipidomics are perfectly suited for a joint multiomics approach. It matches the capacity to identify genetic predestinations with one or multiple snapshots of the lipid metabolic status.
Linking genotype with phenotype will be critical when it comes to clinical diagnostics and to the goal of identifying the onsets of a disease.
From genotype to phenotype: interconnected disease risk factors
In this study, a large number of SNPs (single-nucleotide polymorphisms) from genomes was drawn. They were then correlated with corresponding lipid species levels from human blood plasma. The blood plasma has been analyzed with Lipotype Shotgun Lipidomics technology. The most important findings are the following.
First, the heritability of lipid species levels was quantified from the SNP correlations. Second, genetic predispositions influencing lipid species levels provide useful information for cardiovascular disease risk predictions. And third, lipidomics yields greater statistical power to identify SNPs with direct roles in lipid metabolism. Lipidomics outperforms traditional lipid panel measures used in clinical routine.

Lipotype contributed to an article about lipidomics in biotech and pharma on Technology Networks.
The article in short
Interest in lipidomics has been reignited for both, academia and industry. To cope with that, the article sums up various aspects, developments and differences in lipidomics technology. Such as Lipotype Shotgun Lipidomics technology.
Dr. Christian Klose, Head of Research and Development at Lipotype, had been interviewed to explain how to address the needs and questions of academia and industry. In the end, two researchers from academia and he give brief insights into the future of lipidomics. Both, research- and technology-wise.

Lipotype performed lipid analysis for Flagship VentureLabs with the aim to better understand molecular compositions of chondrisomes, pharmaceutically active derivatives of mitochondria. The research of Flagship VentureLabs is on novel ways of preparation of chondrisomes that have beneficial structural characteristics, yield, concentration, stability, viability, integrity, or function. The lipidomic results facilitated the characterization of isolated chondrisomes in order to evaluate their quality and subsequently were used to file a recently published patent application.
