dc.description.abstract The potential impact of lipid research has been increasingly realised both in disease treatment and prevention. Recent advances in soft ionization mass spectrometry (MS) such as electrospray ionization (ESI) have permitted parallel monitoring of several hundreds of lipids in a single experiment and thus facilitated lipidomics level studies. These advances, however, pose a greater challenge for bioinformaticians to handle massive amounts of information-rich MS data from modern analytical instruments in order to understand complex functions of lipids. The main aims of this thesis were to 1) develop bioinformatics approaches for lipid identification based on ultra performance liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (UPLC/MS) data, 2) predict the functional annotations for unidentified lipids, 3) understand the omics data in the context of pathways and 4) apply existing chemometric methods for exploratory data analysis as well as biomarker discovery. A bioinformatics strategy for the construction of lipid database for major classes of lipids is presented using simplified molecular input line entry system (SMILES) approach. The database was annotated with relevant information such as lipid names including short names, SMILES information, scores, molecular weight, monoisotopic mass, and isotope distribution. The database was tailored for UPLC/MS experiments by incorporating the information such as retention time range, adduct information and main fragments to screen for the potential lipids. This database information facilitated building experimental tandem mass spectrometry libraries for different biological tissues. Non-targeted metabolomics screening is often get plagued by the presence of unknown peaks and thus present an additional challenge for data interpretation. Multiple supervised classification methods were employed and compared for the functional prediction of class labels for unidentified lipids to facilitate exploratory analysis further as well as ease the identification process. As lipidomics goes beyond complete characterization of lipids, new strategies were developed to understand lipids in the context of pathways and thereby providing insights for the phenotype characterization. Chemometric methods such as principal component analysis (PCA) and partial least squares and discriminant analysis (PLS/DA) were utilised for exploratory analysis as well as biomarker discovery in the context of different disease phenotypes. en
