Abstract: The study of biology is undergoing a remarkable, technology-driven transformation. Innovative technologies based on mass spectrometry (MS) allow to simultaneously measure the numerous and diverse metabolites present in biological samples, facilitating our ability to describe complex biological systems. Novel informatics solutions allow to mine and filter the big data, translating them into meaningful results. This large-scale analysis of metabolites (i.e., metabolomics) and lipids (i.e., lipidomics) is now widely embraced by the scientific community, making it a standard research tool in the academic, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology sectors. In this presentation, I will illustrate the use of state-of-the-art MS-based tools for metabolomics and lipidomics with a particular focus on Life Sciences applications. Topics of interest:
1. Untargeted methods for unbiased screening and discovery potential biomarkers
2. Structural elucidation to facilitate the identification of lipids and metabolites
3. Targeted methods for routine analyses and quantification
4. MS imaging and ambient ionization methods for studying the spatial distribution of metabolites and lipids in tissues
