  • LIPID MAPS Tools Package
    Command line Perl scripts to generate SD files containing structure and ontological data for various lipid categories. The current version supports structure generation for Fatty acyls (FA), Glycerolipids (GL), Glycerophospholipids (GP), Cardiolipins (CL), Sphingolipids (SP) and Sterols (ST). Please see our documentation for specific main and subclasses. | | | | |

  • LIPID MAPS Mass Spectrometry Combinatorial Expansion Package
    A set of command line PHP scripts to generate tabular datasets contining species name, m/z and molecular formula for some of the main lipid categories. User-defined options include a range of chain-lengths and a choice of poitive and negative ion-types. The generated MS datasets may then be used as databases or references to aid in identification and assignment of ions in mass spectrometry experiments of lipids. The current version supports Glycerolipids (GL), Glycerophospholipids (GP), Cardiolipins (CL) and Sphingolipids (SP).

  • LIPID MAPS Ontology Tools Package
    Command line Perl script to generate ontology data using structure data in SD file(s). The LIPID MAPS ontology script uses Perl modules from MayaChemTools package, an external open source Perl package, to generate ontology data and requires its local installation.
