LIFS Application Portal

LIFS is a project funded by BMBF as part of the German network for bioinformatics infrastructure (de.NBI) to provide and support tools for lipid-related bioinformatics.

The aim of LIFS includes implementation, establishment and provision of bioinformatics tools and services for lipidomics and its application in biomedical sciences. These services will be made available to the public on the LIFS web portal.

This page offers an overview of the web applications provided by LIFS and their current status. Some of the services may be access restricted, but you can contact us to request access to them.
