Software Highlight: LipiDex

LipiDex is a free and open-source software package offered by NCQBCS. This software package unifies all stages of the LC-MS/MS lipid identification process, and also utilizes intelligent data filtering to reduce manual result curation while increasing identification confidence.

One can use LipiDex to accomplish a variety of functions. For instance, one can create and manage custom in-silico lipid spectral libraries; model complex lipid MS/MS fragmentation using intuitive fragmentation templates; generate high-confidence MS/MS lipid identifications; annotate chromatographic peak tables with lipid identifications; and automatically filter peak tables for adduct peaks, in-source fragments and dimers.

Information on both LipiDex and Library Forge can be found here, and the software download is located here. Additionally, information on other software that the National Center for Quantitative Biology of Complex Systems offers can be found here.
