deprecated Lipid Ontology


General Information
This record was deprecated on April 7, 2016 for the following reason(s): None

Lipid research is increasingly integrated within systems level biology such as lipidomics where lipid classification is required before appropriate annotation of chemical functions can be applied. The ontology describes the LIPIDMAPS nomenclature classification explicitly using description logics (OWL-DL).
