Generates associations between Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) and LIPID MAPS structure Database (LMSD) databases. NICELips consists of several components integrated into a workflow and it is the first tool to provide an efficient and consistent procedure for linking lipid compound databases. It provides a full overview of all lipid species in the cell, and particularly in the context of metabolic pathways that comprise all the chemical interactions and transformations between lipid compounds and enzymes.
