In the last years, lipidomics has emerged as a rapidly evolving tool in many fields of science. In our laboratory, we are particularly interested in unravelling the complex role of the wide range of lipids in the pathogenesis of disease (e.g. cancer). To this end, we are deeply committed in the development of workflows and tools focused on improving lipidome analysis and lipid annotation when liquid chromatography coupled to high-resolution mass spectrometry (LC-HRMS) approaches are used.
FAMetA is an R-based tool aimed to the analysis of fatty acids (FA) metabolism. It allows the estimation of FA import (I), de novo synthesis (S), fractional contribution of 13C-tracers (D0, D1, D2), elongation (E) and desaturation (Des) based on 13C mass isotopologue distributions.
