LIPID MAPS® Highlights

'Scalable Curation' project

We are delighted to announce a successful award in collaboration with WikiPathways and EpiLipidNet from the ELIXIR Data Platform Implementation Study call for ‘Scalable Curation’.

This award funds a full time curator to support expert community curation of lipids and pathways/networks for lipidomics. This work will add expert-curated and reviewed pathways to the WikiPathways lipid portal (, and link reactions back to the new LIPID MAPS reaction database. New Pathway curation will enable development of tools for lipidomics systems biology. 

This award will start in January 2022.
