The Lipidomics Standards Initiative was initiated in early 2018 by Kim Ekroos and Gerhard Liebisch. What are its aims, and what will it bring to the table? Ekroos explains the grand plan.
We launched the Lipidomics Standards Initiative (LSI) because we saw that the number of studies reporting low-quality lipid data was increasing and felt there was a need to develop guidelines.
The aim of the initiative is to create a common standard for minimum acceptable data quality and reporting for lipidomics. We want to centralize lipidomics standards with the goal of guiding and stimulating users, reviewers, editors, and funders toward harmonized lipidomic outputs. The initiative covers the major lipidomic workflows, including sample collection, storage, as well as data deconvolution and reporting. It is a community-wide effort covering methodological progress based on the input of researchers in the field.
