This technology has revolutionized the field of proteomics, genomics, and lipidomics
by increasing the throughput for sample analysis.
Along with Hoft, SLU researchers Yie-Hwa Chang, David Ford and James Edwards are expected to explore the areas of transcriptomics (how RNA molecules react), proteomics (the structure and function of proteins), lipidomics
(the networks and pathways of lipids) and metabolomics (metabolites, small molecules produced during processes such as digestion) as part of the contract.
McEvoy, researchers used a lipidomics
platform to measure individual lipid species in 20 drug-naive patients with a first episode of schizophrenia, 20 patients with chronic schizophrenia who had not adhered to prescribed medications, and 29 controls without schizophrenia (PloS One.
as an emerging tool to predict endometrial receptivity.
Although such knowledge is not essential for the discovery of diagnostics, it can be invaluable for identifying new targets for individual interventions; functional metabolomics provides optimal possibilities, particularly when stable-isotope-assisted metabolomics or lipidomics
approaches are applied (14).
Notable speakers include Manfred Raida, Senior Research Fellow, Singapore Lipidomics
Incubator (SLING) Center for Life Sciences (CeLS) who is also currently the President for the Singapore Society for Mass Spectrometry (SSMS) - one of the supporting associations for AnalabAsia2013 Technical Forum.
The topics include the sampling and sample preparation problem in microbial metabolomics, gas chromatography and comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography hyphenated with mass spectrometry for targeted and non-targeted metabolomics, the art and practice of lipidomics
, the potential of microfluidics and single-cell analysis, applications in plant sciences, and nutritional metabolomics.

PietilAainen (Obesity Research Unit, Helsinki University Central Hospital), Antonio Vidal-Puig (University of Cambridge), Matej Oresic and colleagues used lipidomics
to study the fat tissue biopsies among several sets of monozygotic twins.
