Marine Lipidomics Laboratory
Published in 20/11/2018
Marine Lipidomics Lab aims to identify the lipidome and the role of lipids in marine organism, by using modern lipidomic mass spectrometry methodologies. Marine organisms are characterized by specific lipid signatures and are rich in lipids with high nutritional value, namely omega 3 fatty acids. Marine lipids also display bioactive properties that may give origin to high value products for biotechnological applications in the food, feed and pharma industries.
Furthermore, Marine Lipidomics lab aims to boost the use of lipid profiling for traceability and identification of geographic origin of marine organism to secure food safety and valorization of premium products.
