The LIPID MAPS Lipid Classification System is comprised of eight lipid categories, each with its own subclassification hierarchy. All lipids in the LIPID MAPS Structure Database (LMSD) have been classified using this system and have been assigned LIPID MAPS ID's which reflects their position in the classification hierarchy.

Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from LIPID MAPS should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE
Metaregistry LIPID MAPS

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 7 mappings to external registries for lipidmaps.

Registry Name Metaprefix External Prefix
