Welcome to the Lipid Network Explorer!

LINEX is a webapp to analyze lipid metabolic networks. Lipidomics data can be uploaded and data-specific lipid networks are computed, which can give insights about functional lipid associations.

For more information about the LINEX method and applications, please check out the  publication.
Have a look at the  Tutorial and  disclaimer before uploading your own data.

LINEX can be used with example lipidomics data or your own lipidomcis data can be  uploaded.

Watch our short walk through of LINEX:


07.10.2021 - Standalone html node size bug fixed

We fixed a bug leading to nodes to be invisble in the standalone html when certain node size properties are selected.

29.09.2021 - ILS Conference material available

Material from our ILS Conference workshop is available here.

20.09.2021 - Statistical Test Options added

Based on user feedback we added additional options for statistical tests. You can now choose between (parametric) t-test, non-parametric unpaired tests and non-parametric paired tests.

02.09.2021 - New Tutorial Video

Checkout our new tutorial on youtube or on top of the page on using LINEX to get started with your analysis.

31.08.2021 - New Layout

We updated the LINEX layout to make working with LINEX even easier and more structured. Analyze your Lipidomics data now!

01.08.2021 - Workshop at ILS 2021

We will make a workshop about LINEX and our sample stratification tool MoSBi at the International Lipidomics Society annual conference on October 5th - 8th, 2021 in Regensburg, Germany. Get hands-on experience with LINEX and learn about new ways to analyze lipidomics data.

28.07.2021 - LINEX publication online

We are happy to anounce that LINEX is published in Metabolites. Check out the publication here: Köhler and Rose et al. Investigating Global Lipidome Alterations with the Lipid Network Explorer

01.07.2021 - LINEX online

The Lipid Network Explorer web application is online! Our tool to provide a global view on the lipidome with lipid metabolic networks is now available to everyone. We hope to present the official publication to you soon. If you have any questions of feedback for us, please contact us!
