liposomal study resources ?

Im looking, but not finding much.
Part of that is not knowing the correct terminology.
Lipodomics still not a high search tag...

Some cell stuff on Utube, but not much comes up in searches.

Am playing with lecithin, and would like to start using some other fatty acids.

suggestions welcome.

What exactly do you want to do?
Just preparing some liposomes is really easy. The easiest way is probably to just put your lecithin in some water and sonicate it. Alternative methods are to push a suspension of your lipids repeatedly through a filter with small holes, or to first dissolve mix with a detergent and then to slowly remove the detergent again (eg by chromatography)

With respect to terminology, I suspect "Lipodomics" may not be what you are meaning to say.
"Lip<u><b>i</b></u>domics" refers to the science of studying large numbers of different lipids in biology.
I've never heard the term "Lipodomics", despite having worked for quite some time on fatty acid metabolism and on developing techniques for incorporating functional protein metabolite pumps in liposomes.
