A recently published commentary by David Ford, Professor of Biochemistry, was highlighted in ASBMBToday. The commentary, which appeared in the Journal of Lipid Research, focused on using BioOrthogonal-Sort-Sequence-Spectrometry or BOSSS as a new tool in lipid research.
BOSSS can be used in combination with click chemistry methods to develop functionalized lipids for studies on lipid metabolism, subcellular distribution, and interactions with other biomolecules. It is an innovative and adaptable tool that can be used for a wide variety of research needs.
