Thanks to all attendees who helped to make this a great event! The ILS Applied Bioinformatics Interest Group invited to join the Bioinformatics for Lipidomics Symposium on October 2nd, 2020, as part of this year’s joint virtual European Lipidomics Meeting & Lipidomics Forum. With over 150 attendees discussing the challenges and future of lipidomics bioinformatics the event was a great success! We were very happy that this conference was supported by the ILS and the University of Vienna.
We introduce Goslin (August 2020), a polyglot grammar for common lipid shorthand nomenclatures based on the LipidMaps nomenclature and the shorthand nomenclature established by Liebisch et al. and used by LipidHome and SwissLipids. Goslin was designed to address the following pressing issues in the lipidomics field: 1) to simplify the implementation of lipid name handling for developers of mass spectrometry-based lipidomics tools; 2) to offer a tool that unifies and normalizes the main existing lipid name dialects enabling a lipidomics analysis in a high-throughput fashion. We provide implementations of Goslin in four major programming languages, namely C++, Java, Python 3, and R to kick-start adoption and integration. Further, we set up a web service for users to work with Goslin directly. All implementations are available free of charge under a permissive open source license. Here some links:
The lab also would like to thank all the people involved in the development of LIPIDCREATOR and the infrastructure around it and for their support! Also, thanks for the great questions and good suggestions during ISMB!
