Overview of Interfaces
We provide multiple options for accessing LMSD records, as outlined below. Search results for online interfaces provide a summary table of database entries matching search criteria, with LM_IDs linked to individual records, which contain lipid structure and extensive annotations, including relevant links to external databases.
