The lipidome is composed of all of the biomolecules defined as lipids, which encompass compounds of amazing structural diversity and complexity. It has been ~1 decade since the study of "lipidomics" was begun in earnest, and the technologies and tools for data analysis have advanced considerably over this period. This workshop summarized the scope of the lipidome and technologies for its analysis, lipidomics databases and other online tools, and examples of the application of lipidomics to nutritional research. The slides from the workshop, online lipidomics tools, and databases are available at
