Mass spectrometry-based untargeted lipidomics data analysis software tools

Due to its sensitivity and selectivity mass spectrometry (MS) is the method of choice for qualitative and quantitative lipidomic analysis. Although it is not yet possible to detect and quantify all individual lipids in a given cellular system, the aim of lipidomic analysis is to determine as many individual lipids as possible.
